AfCAP is supporting the implementation of a pilot project for Proficiency Testing in selected laboratories in Mozambique. The overall objective is to establish laboratory testing that is “in line with international practices and standards and test results that can be used with confidence”. This report covers the field visit of the CDS Materials Engineer to conduct an initial assessment of laboratories that were shortlisted to participate in the project. The shortlisting was carried out through a questionnaire sent by ANE to all known materials laboratories in the country. The report includes the draft protocol for conducting the first round of the PTS pilot.
This project is funded by DFID under the Applied Research on Rural Roads and Transport Services through Community Access Programmes in Africa and Asia (AFCAP2 and AsCAP)
