Summary of this proficiency test:

On 6 October 2010 the proficiency test on Heavy Metals in Textiles started with 65 participants from 22 different countries.

On that date, the samples (#1076 and #1077) were dispatched to the laboratories. Enclosed to the samples were the instructions to the participants for this proficiency test, forms for the reporting of the analysis results.

The samples have to be analyzed on: As, Sb, Cd, Cr, Co, Cu, Pb, Hg and Ni.

The deadline for reporting results is set on 5 November 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.
