Proficiency Testing scheme benefits:

  • Samples are prepared and calibrated by EffecTech’s ISO 17025 accredited laboratory
  • After completing the scheme, you can request an ISO 17025 certificate of calibration for each cylinder free of charge
  • Each participant will purchase their own cylinders for analysis:
    • No cylinder rental payments
    • After completion of the proficiency testing scheme, the customer can request an ISO 17025 certificate for each cylinder free of charge, so the gas can be used to establish traceability
    • All initial transport of cylinders to each participant’s requested location will be arranged by EffecTech
  • Cylinders can be supplied with British Standard, CGA or DIN valves as required
  • All individual laboratory results are kept confidential
  • Once a member of the scheme, EffecTech will contact each laboratory with a reminder for the next round.
  • Regular participation also allows companies to monitor levels of improvement against their own results as well as the results from the rest of the scheme members.
