proficiency Testing Center

In order to improve the quality of laboratories' performance as part of a quality strategy, the institute established the proficiency testing center.
The center began its activities in 1392 with the development of the national standard INSO-ISO-IEC 17043 to advance the following objectives:
evaluation of the performance of laboratories for specific tests or measurements and monitoring laboratories' continuing performance; 
identification of problems in laboratories and initiation of actions for improvement which, for example, may be related to inadequate test or measurement procedures, effectiveness of staff training and supervision, or calibration of equipment; 
establishment of the effectiveness and comparability of test or measurement methods; 
provision of additional confidence to laboratory customers; 
identification of interlaboratory differences; 
education of participating laboratories based on the outcomes of such comparisons; 
validation of uncertainty claims; 
evaluation of the performance characteristics of a method – often described as collaborative trials; 
assignment of values to reference materials and assessment of their suitability for use in specific test or measurement procedures; 
support for statements of the equivalence of measurements of National Metrology Institutes through “key comparisons” and supplementary comparisons conducted on behalf of the International Bureau of Weights and Measurement (BIPM) and associated regional metrology organizations. 

Proficiency Testing Center ability to implement schemes in laboratory groups of hallmarks on precious metals, electric and electronic, automotive industries, Construction & mineral materials, chemical and petrochemical and polymer industries, food & agricultural industries, metrology (calibration), mechanic and metallurgy, medical engineering, textile and leather, packaging and celluloses materials and, health and cosmetics, and microbiology.
The most important activities of the center include:
Establishing quality management system of the Proficiency Testing Center based on the standards of INSO-ISO 9001 and INSO-ISO-IEC 17043 
Design (development and operation) of proficiency testing schemes 
Design (development and operation)of interlaboratory comparisons
Ranking of laboratories
Preparation and sale of proficiency test items
Preparation and sale of reference materials in accordance with the requirements of ISO Guide 35 and the requirements of ISO 17034
Establishment of the official site of the Standard Proficiency Testing Center 
to register participants and exchange information through the extended IT Infrastructure
The standard research institute as the most important research and research authority of the standardization system in the country as well as the bridge between the centers of production and application of science, with the aim of completing the scientific chain and gaining national trust in products and services, is seeking to create the appropriate and appropriate context. Acquiring the necessary tools, while guiding the universities and research centers to meeting the scientific requirements of standardization, underpins the "transformation of scientific findings into standards" and "development of research-based standards" in order to introduce and transfer scientific advances to industries, service centers and ultimately at the level. Society provides. There are 4 research institutes, 15 research groups, 2 virtual research groups and more than 110 specialized laboratories in the standard research institute, providing the necessary background for research.
