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.
