Proficiency testing

Proficiency testing (PT) or external quality assurance (EQA) is essential for accreditation and good quality assurance programmes.

The EURL will regularly provide NRLs with PT distributions covering hepatitis A virus and norovirus genogroups I and II in different food matrices, like raspberries, leafy greens and bivalve molluscan shellfish. It is not sure that the number of PTs from the EURL will be satisfactory for maintaining accreditation for ISO 15216.

Invitations and instructions will be found under respective year for each PT.
