In January 2018 UK NEQAS Microbiology will be introducing a new on-line form for re-registration for April 2018 - March 2019 year subscription for UK participants and overseas laboratories not served by distributors.
The online form will be available through the secure login area of our website from 2 January 2018, and will enable participants to make any amendments to their current participation requirements (if required) and confirm participation for the new financial year. The form can then be submitted directly to UK NEQAS through this portal. Additional features of the online form will include an auto-totalling of costs based upon confirmed scheme registrations.
Re-registration for participants who have arrangements with in-country distributors will continue to be handled as in previous years.
Participants will be able to amend forms multiple times up till the deadline of 16 February 2018. After this date the form will not be able to be accessed and the final data submitted will be what UK NEQAS will retain as requirements for registration in April 2018 - March 2019. Once the form has been submitted there will be an option for printing or saving the information submitted.
During the period from the date of availability of the form to the date of closing, requests received for participation changes will not be actioned as we would expect participants to make these changes on the re-registration form. Cancellation of participation (all schemes) and new participant requests will be carried out
