Summary of this proficiency test:

On 19 February 2014 the proficiency test on Gasoil started with 170 participants from 58 different countries.

On that date, the samples were dispatched to the laboratories. Enclosed to the samples were the instructions to the participants for this proficiency test, forms for the reporting of the analysis results and the safety data sheet (SDS).

The samples can be analyzed on Ash content, Cetane Index, Carbon residue, Cloud Point, CFPP, copper corrosion, Density @ 15C, Flash Point PMcc, FAME content, Kinematic viscosity @40C, Lubricity by HFRR, Nitrogen, Manganese content, PAH, pour point, Sulphur content, Total acid number, Water content, total contamination and Distillation at 760 mmHg.

The deadline for reporting results is set on 21 March 2014. A laboratory that reports test results after deadline will definitely not get direct feedback in case any of its results are suspect! So be in good time to get the most out of this proficiency test.
