The procedures in ISO 13528:2015 can be applied to demonstrate that the measurement results obtained by laboratories, inspection bodies, and individuals meet specified criteria for acceptable performance.

ISO 13528:2015 is applicable to proficiency testing where the results reported are either quantitative measurements or qualitative observations on test items.


The analytical guides are relevant to multiple areas in DII, wherever data analysis, prioritisation, and intelligence analysis are used. This is a best practice guide on testing by interlaboratory comparisons.
