Dear employees of testing laboratories,

we would like to invite you to the coming proficiency testing programmes. These are designed as interlaboratory comparison. The proficiency testing programmes are focused on testing laboratories, which perform fossil solid fuel tests, eg. brown coal and black coal. The programmes are designated for all laboratories of power producing, mining and metallurgical companies as well as for research and service departments.

The Proficiency Testing Group is proficiency testing provider no. 7014 accredited by Czech Accreditation Institute in accordance with ČSN EN ISO/IEC 17043:2010. Testing laboratories now have unique opportunity to participate in accredited proficiency testing programme run by local provider and follow the recommendation of CIA to preferably take advantage of the proficiency testing programmes in compliance with ČSN EN ISO/IEC 17043 organized by provider who proved the compliance by accreditation.

In the year 2016 we offer one accredited proficiency testing programme (ZZ/UHLI/A,S,Q/2016) and two non accredited proficiency testing programmes (ZZ/UHLI/C,H,N,V/2016 and ZZ/BIO/A,S,Q,C,H,N/2016).

After evaluation of our customer satisfactory survey we decided to come up with following changes:

  • Analyzed characteristics will be extended with volatile matter (ZZ/UHLI/C,H,N,V/2016 programme).
  • The samples used in PT programmes will be offered to participants as internal referential material (50 g).
  • The sample labelling will be improved.
  • The forms filled by PT participants (application and result forms) will be available in electronic form for download on www site of ORGREZ, a.s..

Some suggestions of PT participants will stay unchanged:

  • The list of PT participants will not be published. The reason is precaution of identification of each single participant.
  • The achieved z-score will not be written on Certificate of participation. Those will be published in final report, which will be part of Certificate of participation. 

UPDATE 29th of July 2016

Within the scope of introducing our new services we offer you a unique opportunity to apply for our proficiency testing programme ZZ/BIO/A,S,Q,C,H,N/2016 entirely free of charge. This proposal is valid for all laboratories, for these that have already applied and for those considering  their application. We also prolong the application deadline until 7th of August 2016.
