The Ultrasound Thickness Measurement Proficiency Testing (PEP) Program consists of the inspection of an ultrasonic metal cube by inspection bodies. The cube is not regular, with each face having a different thickness. Any accredited or accredited participant in process, is eligible for participation.
Participants should measure the thickness of each metal face using the ultrasound technique, expecting an approximate value between 2.00 and 16.00 [mm]. The participant must act according to their practice routine and the Instruction Manual previously sent by Qualabor.
In this program, the Z'-Score will be used as a statistical model to evaluate the result. The reference value will be obtained through an Accredited Laboratory.
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 email@example.com;
- 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.
