It is important for laboratories to be recognized as credible institutions, and generating reliable, reproducible results is key. The quality assurance provided by CHEK can be an important tool for laboratories in achieving these objectives. CHEK help labs measure their analytical proficiency and test the quality of their analysis.
CHEK is a wholly independent subsidiary of the Netherlands Food and Consumer Product Safety Authority (Nederlandse Voedsel en Waren Autoriteit, or NVWA).
