Abstract
A total of 1246 laboratories were enrolled in the PAT Program with 1103 laboratories submitting results on Round 131. The Proficiency Analytical Testing (PAT) Program is a collaborative effort of the American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA) and researchers at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH). The PAT Program provides quality control reference samples to more than 1200 occupational health and environmental laboratories in 17 countries. Although one objective ofthe PAT Program is to evaluate the analytical ability of participating laboratories, the primary objective is to assist these laboratories in imporving their laboratory performance.
