Proficiency Testing

The NZPMA Proficiency Testing programme has been designed to provide a platform for comparative testing amongst NZPMA member companies. The tests are carried out twice yearly, with paint samples being supplied by various members of the association. A results sheet is supplied, with the required tests for this run, and upon return, these are then confidentially summarised. Member companies receive the summary, which includes some basic statistical analysis, along with their company’s individual results to compare.

The testing programme is one of the benefits of being a member of the association, and as such, there is no cost to members for participating.

Below is the Results sheet of Round 3, to show what tests are performed.
