Water analyses are among the most common actions performed in chemical laboratories. To ensure a consistently high quality of the results and compliance with the performance characteristics, many measures are necessary. Interlaboratory comparisons are indispensable as performance record and for proficiency testing. The IFA-Tulln has provided regular interlaboratory comparison tests for water analysis on behalf of the Federal Ministry of Agriculture for 20 years. Since 2013 collaboration with the Federal Environment Agency exists. These ring tests are an integral part of the nationwide monitoring program (Gewässerzustandsüberwachung) and recognised by the Austrian Accreditation Board. At the Center for Analytical synthetic water samples are prepared and subsequently tested with highly precise methods for homogeneity and stability.
