Proficiency Testing

Introduction of Proficiency Testing
Proficiency testing (PT) is used to evaluate the participant performance in accordance to pre-established criteria by inter-laboratory comparisons. Proficiency testing is an important means to evaluate the performance of testing organizations and related laboratories. The implementation of PT projects and relevant training can promote inter-laboratory technical communication, and improves testing quality and technical level at the same time.
Shanghai Institute for Food and Drug Control (SIFDC) accepted and passed the national accreditation of the Proficiency Testing Provider (PTP) review for the first time in December 2016. The proficiency testing provider accreditation certificate (Registration No.: CNAS PT0058) was provided by China National Accreditation Service for Conformity Assessment in February 6, 2017, which means that SIFDC officially obtained the qualification of the international and national referee.
SIFDC carries out PT projects in accordance to international requirements such as ISO/IEC17043. Inspection agencies and related laboratories could use PT as a tool of External Quality Assurance (EQA) to recognize differences between institutions, to supplement their internal quality control techniques, to provide information for their own continuous improvement and quality management. Laboratories’ customers, administrative bureaus, and other evaluating agencies could determine whether the related testing laboratories have the ability to engage in the activities of the calibration/testing, with monitoring their sustainability as well.
Hope anyone who may have interest keep an eye on this page. If you have any questions about PT, please feel free to enquiry SIFDC.
