The Temperature Rise in Toys Proficiency Testing Program (PEP) is the determination of the surface temperature rise of a sample, with an accredited laboratory or accreditation process being eligible to participate.
Participants must perform the test as instructed by Qualabor, expecting values between 20 and 40 [° C]. The participant should proceed as in their practice routine according to ABNT NBR NM 300-6.
Qualabor ensures that the identity of participants in each program is confidential and known only to those involved in its operation, and becomes public only if the participant denies its confidentiality. Qualabor guarantees that all information given by the participants is considered confidential and treated as so.
For quantitative tests, Qualabor uses the following order of priority in choosing the reference value:
01) Robust Z - Robust Average Score - In the test area there are no clear quality levels between laboratories performing the same test, making it difficult to determine a laboratory with better quality recognized and accepted by other participants. The use of the reference value by group consensus is the most applicable, in this case being determined by the result of the robust average, which does not require independent treatment of outliers. To be able to use the least robust group consensus, a group of 4 or more participants is required. The choice of the Z score method is due to the greater acceptance of the participants and also to the difficulty of calculating the measurement uncertainty by them, which is not necessary for this method.
02) Standard error with reference value - When it is not possible to have a group with more than 3 participants, the reference value will be one previously validated with the participants and existing, being a value taken from an accredited laboratory. In this case, priority is given to the normalized error, since the denominator of the Z score is the standard deviation of the program, which has low robustness because it has few participants.
The activities of Qualabor as a proficiency testing provider are done with impartiality and are structured and managed to guarantee that, Qualabor also compromises that commercial, financial, and other types of pressure will not compromise Qualabors' impartiality. It is assurance through the acknowledgment and agreement term, signed by Qualabor collaborators, who affect the quality of proficiency testing.

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.

In case of a complaint or appeal of proficiency program results, the following steps should be followed:
- The participant should send Qualabor by email the complaint or appeal through firstname.lastname@example.org;
- When the email arrives at Qualabor, the participant will be notified that their complaint/appeal was received and may request information about its progress whenever necessary.
- The complaint/appeal will be evaluated by Qualabor, and any corrections or corrective actions needed will be decided and implemented.
- After that, a person authorized by Qualabor, that was not involved before in the process, will send a response to the participant about the process result.
- The participant may contest the decision if it was not satisfactory.
