Leaflet - Selecting the right proficiency testing scheme for my laboratory (2015)

NOTE: This version of the Information Leaflet "How can PT help my laboratory?" has been superseded by a later edition, published in 2022. The latest edition can be found here.


EURACHEM through its Proficiency Testing Working Group has produced an information leaflet to help laboratories select the most appropriate proficiency testing schemes. Several PT schemes are often available for the same area of testing, so this leaflet focuses on key questions that can help laboratories choose those PT schemes that are best suited for their needs. The leaflet is currently available in English, Italian and Spanish.



Please consult the PT Working Group Chair if you would like to prepare a translation in your own language.
