Sampling: Sampling in cases of suspicion

In the event of suspicion of an infringement of the law or Regulations, samples should be taken in duplicate, and both the samples sealed. The formula to which any suspect article purports to have been made should be ascertained. The original sample should be sent to the Department’s appointed analysts, the duplicate sample retained locally.
