Frequently Answered Questions (FAQ):
Question Answer
1. Required areas / types / items are missing from the list of rounds.
Could you organize a round on the corresponding areas / types / items?
The possibility of conducting rounds should be agreed with the coordinator. Contact us in any way convenient for you: tel./fax (057) 752-43-82, 752-43-83, e-mail 330@mtl.kharkov.ua
2. How much does it cost to participate in the round of proficiency testing? The cost for participating in the round of proficiency testing as of March 29, 2019 is the following: testing – 2324.28 UAH including VAT; calibration – 2614.81 UAH including VAT.
The indicated cost does not include the cost of items and documents shipping (the SENDER pays for the shipping). Other terms of delivery are to be agreed in the contract. To determine the actual cost, you should contact the coordinator in any way convenient for you (tel./fax (057) 752-43-82, 752-43-83, e-mail 330@mtl.kharkov.ua)
3. Is it possible to apply for the round that has already started? Yes, you can apply and take part in the round until it is completed
4. The round indicates some calibration points / parameters, which we cannot determine.
What should we do?
The participant of the proficiency testing round has the right to choose some calibration points / parameters that are specified in the round; this will not affect the participant's assessment (the round will be conducted only on the results at those calibration points / parameters) and conclusions will be made based on proficiency testing. You should notify the coordinator about taking part not at all calibration points / parameters that are indicated in the round  in any way convenient for you (tel./fax (057) 752-43-82, 752-43-83, email 330@mtl.kharkov.ua)
5. Is it possible to get results before the round is completed? According to the request of the proficiency testing participant, it is possible to provide the participant with an interim report only with his preliminary results until the round is completed. The interim report lacks some important data that can only be given in the final round report. The term of providing the interim report to the participant is from two to ten working days. Please note that the interim report is CONFIDENTIAL, disclosure of the information contained in it is PROHIBITED!
6. How often is it possible to take part in the rounds? The number of proficiency testing rounds is determined individually by the laboratory management.
We recommend to pay attention to such documents:
- EA-4/18 INF - the recommended minimum for participation in proficiency testing is once regarding certain sub-disciplines over the period of the accreditation cycle (time between repeated evaluations of the accreditation body).
- APLAC PT 006 Issue No. 2, 09/10 - the recommended minimum for participation in proficiency testing, depending on the type of sub-disciplines, is once every two years.
- DSTU ISO 13528: 2016 (ISO 13528: 2015, IDT) - a  laboratory in which a quality management system operates and which has obtained satisfactory results in several rounds of proficiency testing schemes has the right to use these results as evidence that it is able to obtain reliable results.
