What is Proficiency Testing and How to Achieve it
Proficiency testing is a means of assessing the ability of laboratories to competently perform specific tests and/or measurements. Proficiency testing is also called interlaboratory comparison. As this term implies, proficiency testing compares the measuring results obtained by different laboratories. The results reported by each laboratory for a measurand are compared to the reference value for that measurand. The reference value can be determined in various ways. Proficiency testing supports own internal quality control and quality assurance procedures of laboratories by providing an additional external assessment of their testing capability.
