New Information Leaflet on PT for sampling

Sampling PT

PT schemes for sampling play an important role in the improvement of sampling procedures and also in the development of participants from an educational point of view, especially if workshops with the participants are organised. The EEE-PT Working Group has developed a new Information Leaflet giving guidance on the application of ISO/IEC 17043 for PT providers organising PT schemes for sampling. If there is a comparison between participants and a mechanism for performance evaluation which meets the objective of the PT scheme for sampling, then ISO/IEC 17043 is applicable.

The new leaflet is currently available in English, with other translations planned.
