 ABOUT THE EVENT

A Workshop on "Impact of Accreditation on Reference Materials and Method Development in Analytical Laboratories Supporting the Metals and Ores Industries" will be held Monday, May 19, 2014. Sponsored by ASTM Committee E01 on Analytical Chemistry for Metals, Ores, and Related Materials, the workshop will be held at NIST in Gaithersburg, MD, in conjunction with the standards development meetings of the committee.

Objective
The ever-increasing testing demands for metals, alloys, ores, and mining byproducts have been accompanied by more complex requirements for quality system accreditation. Because many industry test methods for chemical metrology require numerous reference materials for calibration and quality assurance, accreditation of producers of certified reference materials has become more demanding, as well. Accreditation processes that tighten requirements for approval of reference materials may needlessly restrict the supply of reference materials and negatively impact the quality of test results, unless they are understood and agreed to by all impacted parties. The one-day workshop will bring together experts from standards development, accreditation, reference materials development, testing labs and product quality assurance to explore the complex intersection of these topics. The goal is to share insights and rationales for streamlining these processes and for creating a continuing venue for cooperation. The semi-annual meeting of Committee E01 will take place on May 20 and 21, 2014 at NIST.
