Since 1989, the Institute for Occupational Safety and Health of the German Social Accident Insurance (IFA) has been providing round-robin tests for laboratories and measuring stations worldwide for the purpose of self-examination and for the external presentation of quality standards within these laboratories. The round-robin tests are conducted in compliance with the requirements of DIN EN ISO/IEC 17043 and of DIN ISO 13528.

The IFA organises the round-robin tests with the co-operation of the Bundesverband der Messstellen für Umwelt- und Arbeitsschutz e. V. (BUA), the German association of environmental and OSH measurement bodies. The BUA recommends regular participation in the IFA's round-robin tests.

Where possible, round-robin tests are offered in which the entire analysis method can be tested. Participants will receive a detailed evaluation and a certificate of participation.
