Report on recent activities

The GHEP-ISFG Proficiency Test (Basic Level) is now accredited under the standard ISO/IEC 17403:2010. Participation is possible for everyone (both GHEP and non-GHEP members). This Proficiency Test is available in Spanish, Portuguese and English. A final report, available in Spanish and English, is released every year. The report includes: description of items, assigned values, anonymized individual results, methodology used, comments and recommendations from the organization, remarks and suggestions from the participants. Additional information can be found at http://ghep-isfg.org/en/proficiency/
