Frequency and Benefits

This global proficiency testing scheme is run annually in May.

  • Companies with multiple teams need only purchase one set of gases and can submit multiple sets of results per round for a small additional fee per team.
  • After the initial purchase, each participant will only pay for cylinder refilling for future rounds and EffecTech will carry out cylinder re-tests when required so there are no additional responsibilities or costs for the customer.
  • Analysis of the gas mixtures takes place at a time and location suitable to the participants (within the timescale of the scheme) so there is no need for overnight stays or equipment transport.
