Proficiency testing providers Accreditation in accordance with DIN EN ISO/IEC 17043

Participation in proficiency tests such as interlaboratory comparisons provides laboratories with valuable insights into their performance and the reliability of their analysis results. Accredited proficiency testing providers have demonstrated that they have performed the interlaboratory comparisons in accordance with the requirements of ISO/IEC 17043.

What are proficiency tests?

A proficiency test is a measurement or testing assignment carried out by several laboratories independently. Most proficiency testing schemes have the following in common: the results obtained by one laboratory are compared with the results obtained by other laboratories. The goal is to determine the performance of the participants under the same general conditions. This approach gives the laboratories the opportunity to demonstrate their competence for testing or to identify sources of error and potential for improvement.

Proficiency testing has become an important aspect of laboratory practice in all areas of testing, calibration and inspection. Providers of these comparisons assume a position of responsibility, as they are responsible for the professional preparation, implementation and evaluation of interlaboratory testing.
