Proficiency Testing

Background

Laboratory proficiency testing is an essential element of laboratory quality assurance. With the increasing demands for independent proof of competence from regulatory bodies and customers, proficiency testing is relevant to all laboratories testing food for quality and safety in every country. Perhaps as importantly for the technical performance of the laboratory, regular proficiency testing provides independent feedback on the quality of analytical results, enabling laboratories to monitor and improve performance over time.
