Proficiency Study Workshops

Proficiency testing assesses the performance of different laboratories and analytical methods by comparing their results for a single sample, and helps provide end-user confidence in overall data quality and reliability of results. NMI hosts workshops for participants and end-users (e.g. consultants, regulators, site managers/owners) to discuss the results of the studies and the significance of the proficiency study results.
