What is Proficiency Testing?

Proficiency Testing (also known as Inter-Laboratory Comparison Programme, ILCP, PT or Proficiency Scheme)  provides laboratories with objective assessments of the accuracy and reliability of their test results. Proficiency Testing also provides the opportunity for laboratories to benchmark their performance within a pooled industry group, nationally or internationally.
