1 ASTM International: Proficiency Test Programs and Technical and Professional Training Courses

2 ASTM Proficiency Testing Programs Designed to provide participating laboratories with a statistical quality control tool enabling laboratories to assess their performance in conducting an ASTM test or series of tests. It is a testing program where identical samples are sent to participating labs where they are analyzed using standard test methods and results reported for statistical treatment

3 ASTM Proficiency Testing Programs ASTM provides management and administrative support to the program including program registration, contract negotiations, data collection and generation of statistical summary reports ASTM coordinates the preparation and distribution of test samples ASTM provides test data reporting instructions and electronic data report forms for recording data Participation registration fees are assessed to each PTP program.

4 ASTM Proficiency Testing Programs ASTM statistical summary reports include: Listing of all lab data Charts and graphs Lab data coded to maintain lab confidentiality. Final summary reports are provided electronically to participants and appropriate Committee contacts.

5 ASTM Motor Gasoline Sample ID: MG0508 Sulfur D5453 Lab Result Rob. Dev. Z-Score Notes **85 Rejected ,2,3 No. Valid Results 57 Robust Mean 6.55 Robust Std. Dev Reproducibility ASTM Standard 2.74 Reproducibility These Test Data 8.4 Anderson Darling 0.70 TPI 0.70 Note Column: = Test result outside 3 sigma range for these test data 2 = Test range outside 3 sigma range ASTM reproducibility Lab data coded to maintain lab confidentiality 3 = Z-score outside range of -2 to 2

6 Sample ID: MG0508 Sulfur - D5453 (mg/kg) Sigma Range Limit These Test Data Sigma Range Limit ASTM Standard Reproducibility Deviation Sigma Range Limit ASTM Standard Reproducibility Sigma Range Limit These 4.9 Test Data Lab Code (Presented Vertically)

7 ASTM Proficiency Testing Programs Globally recognized programs: Over 3,000 units of laboratory participation Over 40% participation outside continental U. S.

8 ASTM Proficiency Testing Programs Provides data for monitoring lab strengths and weaknesses Offers ability to compare results among several test methods measuring the same parameter (e.g., 5 test methods for sulfur) Residual material from these programs along with the published statistical data can provide useful internal QA samples Participation helps satisfy lab accreditation requirements Satisfactory performance can demonstrate testing capability to customers Results and associated statistics helps ASTM validate test method performance under real world conditions
