Testing the testers
Laboratories must have quality control procedures for monitoring the validity of tests undertaken in order to ensure the quality of Test Results.
Among these procedures, the inter-laboratory comparison or proficiency testing programmes (PTPs), are considered the best statistical techniques to determine the real capability and reliability of CB Testing Laboratories (CBTLs).
In addition of being required by ISO/IEC 17025, the Committee of Testing Laboratories (CTL) proficiency testing programme has received full support from the IECEE Certification Management Committee (CMC) for the purpose of increasing the "mutual confidence" between the CBTLs in the field of the CB Scheme and related recognition of CB Test Certificates.
