The organizers of the EN 13725 proficiency test have decided to postpone the Interlaboratory Comparison for Olfactometry (ILC2020) due to recent developments in regard to Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19).
In these unprecedented times and taking into account that many participants are affected by staff shortages or temporary closure, the German company Olfasense has decided to reschedule this year's edition of our EN 13725 proficiency test to September 2020.
The newly defined dates for registration and measurements are as follows:
- Participation needs to be confirmed by May 29, 2020, at the latest.
- The measurements for the proficiency test need to be carried out between September 7 and September 11, 2020, both dates inclusive.
- Individual results must be sent to Olfasense GmbH and received before September 25, 2020, 22:00 GMT.
The organizers will re-evaluate the situation regarding COVID-19 at the latest 4 weeks before the newly-planned execution of the interlaboratory test. If necessary, the schedule will be further adjusted, and they will inform participants accordingly.
