Just like all other UK NEQAS Centres, UK NEQAS ICC & ISH is committed to maintaining services to participants as far as possible. But clearly the situation is very serious and of unknown duration. Therefore, we may need to modify our assessments and their scheduling over the next few months’. If that is the case, we will let you know.

At this time, we are continuing with the slide returns for the current Assessment (Run 129) and aim to send out the distribution of Run 130 as scheduled.

We understand that COVID-19 is impacting on your daily work practises and we do not wish to add to those pressures, therefore if you are unable to meet assessment deadlines for return of slides, or are unable to submit at all, please contact us by email at to let us know.

If you have been in touch to notify us we will be making allowance for late submissions, which will be accepted and assessed if at all possible. Similarly, we will be making allowances for non-submissions.

Further information and updates will also be available on the ICC & ISH website and on the UK NEQAS Twitter page
