GeoPT Proficiency Testing Programme

- a review of operations, progress and opportunities for the future

This workshop is designed for all with an involvement or interest in proficiency testing of laboratories engaged in the routine analysis of silicate rocks. It will be of considerable relevance to current and potential participants in the GeoPT proficiency testing programme and all interested in quality assurance of such activities. Presentations will review the operation and achievements of the GeoPT programme and areas where problems with the quality of routine analytical data have been identified. In addition, options for the future development of the programme will be presented, followed by a discussion of the importance of these options to the user community. As such, the workshop will also serve as the triennial meeting of the GeoPT participating laboratories.
