Urine Toxicology Proficiency Testing Program

The Urine Toxicology Proficiency Testing Program is the longest run program offered, having been operating since 1981. The Urine Toxicology program is both a quantitative and qualitative program, and consists of eleven rounds each year (no samples are required for January).  The samples for the entire program are dispatched during January.

Participants must analyse the three urine samples identified for each round. Substances included in the trial are based on the AS 4308 requirements and may be pooled or spiked samples.

Each round is open up until 1700 on the 27th of each month (Sydney time)Late submissions will NOT be accepted.


Participants in the program are required to analyse samples and submit results online via the website using their facility’s credentials to log on.

The final report, containing qualitative and quantitive results, is uploaded to the FASS Austox website and is accessible using the links above.
