The IP index protection device proficiency scheme consists on checking whether testing items conform to IP protection indexes or not, with any accredited laboratories or in accreditation process being eligible to participate.
The test should be performed on the testing items received, and evaluate whether or not they conform to the IP x5 and IP 4x Protection ratings. The participating laboratory will have the option to perform the test only for the entry of liquids (IP x5), solids only (IP 4x) or, if you prefer, both tests. The participant should proceed as in their practical routine.

EPTIS helps you find a suitable proficiency testing (PT) scheme for your laboratory (a PT scheme is a coherent series of single rounds). For a large number of schemes we have produced data sheets and collected them in the EPTIS database. What is not included in the database is topical information on next PT rounds. When is the next round, and what is the matrix material this time? This information is too dynamic as to be included in the database. But you can find such details for a selection of schemes in our PT calendar.
At present, a listing on the database is only open to PT providers from countries that are covered by our so-called coordinators. They check the plausibility of the data sheet submissions and decide on their publication. They speak the language and are ideally familiar with local PT providers and cultural peculiarities. This helps to safeguard a reasonable level of database quality. There is no cost for PT providers who follow this basic mechanism.
Qualabor register every finished PTs on EPTIS (European Proficiency Testing Information System) database, informing its technical characteristics to anyone who shows interest.
