Proficiency testing participation price list

The National Measurement Institute’s prices for proficiency testing (PT) services for chemical and gas measurements are valid until 30 June 2021.

All prices are in Australian dollars. Overseas laboratories are exempt from GST.

The fee is per sample set and includes packing and delivery (Australia and major cities overseas). When we package and send 2 or more sample sets together, we offer a discount to reflect the reduced freight cost per sample (see additional sample set prices below).
