The following documents may are provided to aid an organization in the development of a Fiber-Counting Round Robin program.

PCM Fiber-Counting Round Robin Regulatory and AAR Requirements

AAR Policy, Article II​

2.3.8 Round-Robin Participation

Organizations shall participate, at least semiannually, in a round-robin airborne fiber counting program with at least two other separate organizations in accordance with the most current edition of the AIHA Laboratory Quality Assurance Manual, Chapter 11, and the OSHA 29 CFR 1910.1001 Appendix A.

Participation in the AIHA Proficiency Analytical Testing Programs, LLC Industrial Hygiene Proficiency Analytical Testing (IHPAT) program for asbestos in air or Asbestos Analysts Testing (AAT) proficiency program does not count toward meeting this requirement.

  • 2.3.8.1 Procedures in the quality manual or SOP shall demonstrate how the field analysts participate in the round-robin program.
  • 2.3.8.2 The results of the round-robin shall be evaluated statistically. If there is a discrepancy concerning a sample or samples, a recount shall be conducted to rectify the problem. Corrective action shall be taken whenever round-robin results are outside acceptance limits.
  • 2.3.8.3 Results from the two latest rounds of round-robin participation with evidence of statistical evaluation of the results shall be submitted with the organization application.
  • 2.3.8.4 Round-robin samples shall be analyzed by the same procedure as that used for field samples, in accordance with approved methodology.

NIOSH 7400 Method Issue 3

CALIBRATION AND QUALITY CONTROL section, step 17: Each laboratory analyzing samples shall implement an interlaboratory quality assurance program that as a minimum includes participation of at least two other independent laboratories. Each laboratory shall participate in round robin testing at least once every 6 months with at least all the other laboratories in its interlaboratory quality assurance group. Each laboratory shall submit slides typical of its own workload for use in the program. The round robin shall be designed and results analyzed using appropriate statistical methodology.

OSHA 29 CFR 1910.1001 Appendix A
