Workshop organized by EURACHEM

 

In the period September 25-28, 2023, the Head of Accredited PROVIDER at “INTERPROJECT” Ltd had the opportunity to attend a PT Workshop organized by Eurachem in cooperation with CITAC and EQALM.

10th Workshop on Proficiency Testing in Analytical Chemistry, Microbiology and Laboratory Medicine, over 200 delegates from over 45 countries are attending. It was great to have the PT community meeting in Windsor, UK- along with informative training courses, lectures, short communications, poster sessions and working group discussions.

Its mission was to provide a forum within the world chemical measurement community for pursuing excellence in the development and implementation of proficiency testing.  

An interesting workshop considering that the proficiency testing is one of the essential requirements of the ISO 17025 and ISO 15189.

Dear Heads of Laboratories, Inspection Bodies, Organizations,

 

Accredited PROVIDER at “INTERPROJECT” Ltd. (Certificate of Accreditation № 526/T-007/11.11.2020, valid until 11.11.2025) by Slovak National Accreditation Service (SNAS) inform you that on our web page you can find the the updated PT Program for the current year PROGRAMME THE PROVIDER at “INTERPROJECT” LTD FOR THE CONDUCT OF PROFICIENCY TESTING BY TECHNICAL PROJECTS FOR INTERLABORATORY COMPATISONS IN THE PERIOD 2023 (15 projects) and the extensive PROGRAMME THE PROVIDER at “INTERPROJECT” LTD FOR THE CONDUCT OF PROFICIENCY TESTING BY TECHNICAL PROJECTS FOR INTERLABORATORY COMPATISONS IN THE PERIOD 2015 – 2026. You can do the application of participation in the technical projects by sending a Registration card for participation and its registration, payment can be made until the start of the PT projects in the relevant period of the year. Registration cards should be submitted in a timely manner at the latest up to 10 days before the start of PT in order to anticipate the material required for proficiency test items. You can apply for participation in PT projects even much earlier, so that the PT project can be planned in time. You may be issued with a Certificate of Participation/Attendance in a PT upon your request.

For the first half of 2023, 6 Proficiency Testing (PT) schemes will start, accepting Registration cards for participation in them. The proficiency test items will be distributed in the period may – june,2023, as follows:

  2. IP-SFG-220/2023 Gypsum – 10 physicochemical characteristics;

  3. IP-MLKP-226/2023 Raw cow’s milk – 9 physicochemical characteristics.

Interlaboratory comparisons are technique for method validation and proof of technical competence of a laboratory. Each participating laboratory performs a number of measurements selected from her site characteristics test by applying the best method utilized in the laboratory or in the methods according to the instructions provided by the Organizer. We are also waiting for your proposals for the realization of other Proficiency Testing (PT) schemes for which you are ready to participate or additing characteristics of the announced PT projects.

Training programs and programs for interlaboratory comparisons for 2023

 

Dear Heads of Laboratories, Inspection Bodies, Organizations,

Due to receiving multiple requests about the upcoming trainings and education courses of general and specialized nature this year, The licensed vocational training center/ LVTC (License No. 2015121223 of NAVO/ 01.07.2015),  inform you that,

“TRAINING AND EDUCATION PROGRAM FOR LABORATORIES, INSPECTION BODIES AND ORGANIZATIONS FOR 2023 is uploaded to our website.

The program contains information about the conduct of 50 trainings/educations in Sofia and Varna in 2023.

You have the opportunity to plan your training programs during the current year.

In 2021 – 2022, 15 new guides of ILAC, EA, EURACHEM and other international organizations were approved, which will be discussed and explained in detail in the lectures on the individual courses of the program.

We pay special attention to the new tоpics:

• Implementation of the requirements of the new ILAC-G24: 2022 “Instructions for determining the calibration intervals of the measuring instruments” concerning the clarification of the scope and the determination of recalibration intervals of measuring equipment.

The specified requirements are considered in detail in courses with numbers 04/2023, 10/2023, 16/2023, 17/2023, 24/2023, 31/2023, 33/2023, 35/2023. The changes are discussed also in courses with numbers 01/2023, 09/2023, 19/2023, 28/2023.

The new requirements lead to changes in the procedures for managing technical means.

  • Implementation of new requirements acording to EN ISO 16140-3:2021 “Microbiology of the food chain – Method validation – Part 3: Protocol for the verification of reference methods and validated alternative methods in a single laboratory (ISO 16140-3:2021)”.

The standard will be discussed from Assoc. Prof. Dr. Rositsa Enikova in two courses 07/2023 and 14/2023 in Sofia. This document specifies the protocol for the verification of reference methods and validated alternative methods for implementation in the user laboratory.
This document is applicable to the verification of methods used for the analysis (detection and/or quantification), confirmation and typing of microorganisms in:

– products intended for human consumption;

– products intended for animal feeding;

– environmental samples in the area of food and feed production, handling;

– samples from the primary production stage.

This document is, in particular, applicable to bacteria and fungi. Some clauses can be applicable to other (micro)organisms or their metabolites, to be determined on a case-by-case basis.
The technical protocols for the verification of validated qualitative methods and validated quantitative methods are described in Clauses 5 and 6. The technical protocol for the verification of validated alternative confirmation and typing methods is described in Clause 7. The protocols for the verification of non-validated reference methods are described in Annex F.

Different courses comment on the new standards guides and projects, including some EA-4/02M: 2022 discussion positions: EA-4/18G:2021, EA-4/09G:2022, ILAC-P14:09/2020, ILAC-G17:01/2021, ILAC G27: 07/2019 and other NTDs concerning quantitative and quality methods.

The implementation of the “TRAINING AND EDUCATION PROGRAM FOR LABORATORIES, INSPECTION BODIES AND ORGANIZATIONS FOR 2022 continues (see our website) for the period September – December, ie. Courses № 34/2022 ÷ 48/2022. Applications for all courses with remote participation for 2022 and 2023 are accepted.
