IP 570 PTS Quarterly membership

Part Number SA4032-0

Stanhope-Seta’s IP 570 Proficiency Testing Scheme (PTS) is recommended practice in IP 570/14a

A new verification procedure has been recommended in IP 570/14a Determination of H2S in marine fuels. Participation within the PT Scheme is stated as the preferred means to achieve this recommendation.

The IP 570 PTS is a statistical quality assurance programme that enables laboratories to evaluate their performance for testing for liquid phase H2S using Seta's H2S Anaylser. Participants in the scheme can continually monitor and compare performance by analysing their data against similar laboratories in accordance with ISO/IEC 17025.

How does the IP 570 PTS work?

The scheme is web based and is available for quarterly subscription. Members are provided with a test pack containing Test Fluid & Activator Solution, instruction sheet, syringes and Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS).

Upon completion of the test participants enter their results data onto the web. After all data has been submitted and analysed a summary report will be issued.
