Stanhope-Seta has announced the launch of a new Proficiency Test Scheme (PT Scheme) website designed for all PT Scheme customers

Proficiency testing is defined as an evaluation of participant performance against pre-established criteria by means of a worldwide inter-laboratory comparison (ISO 17043). The scheme acts as a quality assurance programme which enables users to continually monitor the performance of their instruments in accordance with ISO 4259-3, regular verification is also a requirement of ISO 17025.

The new site is user friendly, making it quick and easy for customers to submit their results. The website sends participants reminders when a scheme is due to close or their subscription is coming to an end and guidance if their results are out of range.

 

IP 570 Proficiency Testing Scheme

Validation of apparatus performance is stated as a mandatory requirement at least every 3 months in IP 570. Participation in the PT Scheme is stated as the preferred means to achieve this, enabling laboratories to evaluate their performance for testing H2S in the liquid phase using the Seta H2S Analyser.
