  • Title: QUASIMEME - About
    Descriptive info: About Quasimeme.. Since 1st January 2011, Quasimeme is part of WEPAL (Wageningen Evaluating Programmes for Analytical Laboratories.. WEPAL is accredited for the organisation of Interlaboratory Studies by the Dutch Accreditation Council RvA since April 26, 2000 (registration number R002).. The accreditation is based on the ISO 17043 requirements.. The scope can be found at:.. http://www.. wepal.. nl/website/ab.. out_wepal/Scope.. htm.. Now that Quasimeme is part of WEPAL their scope is increased with Quasimeme’s exercise determinands.. See our brochure for more details.. Backround information:.. Our Name.. The acronym QUASIMEME comes from it´s EU project name "Quality Assurance of Information for Marine Environmental Monitoring in.. Europe.. " which was founded in 1992.. At the heart of the programme is a holistic learn-by-doing spiral.. The rountine laboratory performance studies provide the basis of external quality assurance for institutes that make regular chemical measurements in the marine environment.. QUASIMEME supports laboratories with:.. • External Quality Assurance.. • Accreditation.. • Evidence of laboratory competence.. • Quality of environmental data.. QUASIMEME is more than a proficiency testing scheme.. The holistic approach to Quality Assurance provides:.. • Confidential information on laboratory performance.. • Natural test materials of relevant matrices with determinands at realistic concentrations.. • Wet biota and sediment homogenates with full evidence of homogeneity.. • Full statistical assessment, performance summary sheets.. and exercise reports.. • Development exercises for new or difficult analyses.. • Workshops for discussion and improvement in.. methodology.. • Helpdesk.. • QUASIMEME workshops, newsletters and conferences.. is an interactive scheme.. Participants can.. request specific  ...   by this scheme and the opportunity to verify the laboratory performance was clearly of significant value to those who participated.. The advantage of this initial project was that the studies were centrally financed.. However, this approach only enabled a limited number of institutes to benefit from this support.. After the end of the EU funding in 1995, the QUASIMEME scheme continued on subscription basis.. Now it is possible for any laboratory worldwide to participate.. The subscription scheme began in 1996 and has included the existing matrix-determinant combinations from the EU QUASIMEME 92-96 programme with additional measurements as needed for national and international marine QA programmes.. New determinants are added if there is a demand for them.. In addition, workshops and development exercises with the framework of the scheme are organised.. The QUASIMEME project has been hosted from its inception in 1992 to April 1, 2005, by the Fisheries Research Institute in Aberdeen, United Kingdom.. Wageningen University and Research (WUR) has taken over the responsibility for the QUASIMEME project on April 1, 2005.. Three groups of WUR cooperate: the Centre for Water and Climate of Alterra, the Netherlands Institute for Fisheries Research (RIVO), and the Wageningen Evaluating Programmes for Analytical Laboratories the Soil Chemistry and Chemical Soil Quality group.. Alterra acts as coordinator.. In the periode between April 1, 2005 and April 1, 2006, the Fisheries Research Institute in Aberdeen cooperates so as to ensure a smooth transition of the scheme from the Aberdeen, United Kingdom to Wageningen, the Netherlands..

  • Title: QUASIMEME - Terms of participation
    Descriptive info: The QUASIMEME LP Studies will be open and available to any organisation for the purposes of providing support to laboratories' QA programme through participation in external quality assurance scheme.. The LP Studies are financed by the participants.. Each participant will be required to pay a fee for each group of test materials required.. The list of test materials in each group and the scale of charges for the current year are given on this site and in the brochure which can be downloaded.. The cost of the LP Studies includes the following:.. Provision of the test materials delivered to the stated address.. Provision of information and/or protocols to carry out that study.. Provision of a Sharepoint Site Data Submission Form with instructions for use for all data results.. An assessment of the study and a report giving the details of the exercise.. Provision of a helpdesk and support relating to any matters of the LP Studies..

Each test material will be provided in a suitable container, correctly labelled with the hazard warning and international codes for transport.. It will be homogeneous and stable for the duration of the study period and sufficient for the determination.. The amount of material required will be determined by the Scientific Assessment Group.. In most cases there will be sufficient material for multiple determination.. Also the test material may be stable for considerable period beyond the study period.. Additional test material will only be provided when a participant can demonstrate that the amount provided was inadequate.. Additional  ...   month of the commencement of that period.. Participants may request test material at any time.. The QUASIMEME Project Office will normally despatch the material within one month of receipt of the order if it is during the study period.. However, the project office cannot guarantee the timely arrival of the test material if it is ordered after the normal despatch date of that study period.. All participants will be notified of the dispatch of all test materials and an acknowledgement of receipt of these test materials will not normally be required.. If no reply is received, it will be assumed by the Project Office that the goods have been received in good condition.. It is the responsibility of the participant to notify the Project Office if there is any damage or if the test materials are not received.. Participants will be invoiced for all orders received after the first set of test material has been dispatched that year.. A damaged test material will be replaced free of charge, provided that the participant provides details of the damage.. However, where a history of damaged goods occur with shipment to any one location the project office may require evidence of the damage in order to claim for that damage in transit with the shipping agent.. The fees and annual subscription will be due, following receipt of the participant's request and dispatch of the first set of test material, regardless of whether the participant submits data on that study.. Data will be regarded as submitted for assessment if it is delivered to the QUASIMEME Project Office, in the stated format, on or before the deadline of that study period.. Data which arrive after the deadline may not be included in the assessment.. No subscription fee will be returned to any participant except, in unforeseen circumstances where a study has been cancelled and the test material is not issued.. Once a test material has been issued it will not be accepted for return and full payment of the material will be due..

  • Title: QUASIMEME - Confidentiality and openness
    Descriptive info: Confidentiality.. QUASIMEME is designed to provide support to laboratories for accreditation and for submission of data to monitoring, research or contracted organisations.. It is the full responsibility of the laboratory to disclose information on its participation in QUASIMEME and its performance as part of their quality system.. While QUASIMEME gives full support to each laboratory's quality system, it is not in itself part of that system.. In setting this standard of confidentiality, QUASIMEME can maintain a position of impartiality.. Support can be given to a laboratory which may require assistance to improve performance on a particular study, e.. g.. using the marine network to allow a participant to contact an experienced laboratory who can provide guidance and specific information.. Each laboratory should decide when, and if, it wishes to declare the performance of any specific laboratory study.. The following statements refer to data and information.. All reports and information on the performance of individual participants will  ...   of data generated by each participant for the QUASIMEME LP Studies including information on the assessment of performance of the laboratory such as Z-scores or comments on laboratory performance shall remain the property of the laboratory submitting these data.. Information on a specific laboratory may only be used by that laboratory.. All general comments made by the QUASIMEME assessors on any study, where there is no specific reference to any identifiable laboratory, shall remain the property of the QUASIMEME LP Studies and be available for publication.. QUASIMEME positively encourages each participant to make full use of their own study performance results in support of their Quality System for chemical measurements.. Openness.. The overall information on the progress of the QUASIMEME LP Studies will be published in reports and in the open literature.. No participant will be identified in these publications.. Full use of these reports and papers may be made with due acknowledgement to the LP Studies..
