Dear Colleagues,

The JCTLM Members’ and Stakeholders’ Meeting and Workshop on ‘EQA schemes elucidating the clinical suitability of laboratory results’ will be held at the BIPM on Monday 4 and Tuesday 5 December 2023.

The biennial meeting of the Members and Stakeholders will start with a morning session on JCTLM update and report on 4 December and will be followed by a Workshop to explore the relationship between proficiency testing/external quality assurance (EQA) and traceability. A range of experts will describe the current quality of laboratory assays and how EQA schemes can identify where improvement in assays is needed. The theme of this Workshop is how EQA schemes can improve and provide a more helpful assessment of this quality.
