Comparaisons interlaboratoires en étalonnage et en essai - Retour d’experience
Laboratoire National de Métrologie et d’Essais (LNE) 1, rue Gaston Boissier 75724 Paris cedex 15, France.
Demonstration of performance in testing and calibration becomes a pre-requisite within the framework of a peers recognition (MRA: Mutual Recognition Arrangement) either within the framework of an accreditation ISO 17025 [ 1 ] or ISO 15189 [ 2 ] or other standards. Participation in interlaboratory comparisons is the most relevant and independent means to estimate capacity in performing measurements. The challenge for participants is to opt for programs of interlaboratory comparisons which address their objectives as well as competent organizers of comparisons. The organization of interlaboratory comparisons is recognized as being a full competence with reference to the ISO 17043 standard and adapted methodological tools. In France, recognition and visibility of organizers has been on-going for years and is continuously improving.
