Summary of this proficiency test:

On 18 August 2010 the proficiency test on Flame Retardants in Plastics started with 46 participants from 18 different countries.

On that date, the samples (#1050 and #1051) were dispatched to the laboratories. Enclosed to the samples were the instructions to the participants for this proficiency test and forms for the reporting of the analysis results.

The samples have to be analyzed on: Octabromodiphenyl, Nonabromodiphenyl, Decabromodiphenyl, Octabromodiphenyl ether, Nonabromodiphenyl ether and Decabromodiphenyl ether.

The deadline for reporting results is set on 17 September 2010. A laboratory that sends in results after deadline will definitely not get direct feedback in case any of its results are suspect! So be in good time to get the most out of this proficiency test.
