International Quality Assurance Exchange Program Overview
The International Quality Assurance Exchange Program (IQAEP) is an interlaboratory proficiency testing program consisting of a series of petroleum related tests, frequent exchanges of a wide range of energy products and rapid report turnaround times. Proficiency testing is a valuable tool to evaluate laboratory performance; providing an objective means to monitor test methodology, personnel and reporting procedures. Accreditation bodies use proficiency testing as part of the assessment of a laboratoryâ€™s ability to perform tests competently.
