AACC International Analytical Accuracy Awardees for 2015 Announced

AACC International Analytical Accuracy Award Recipients for 2015 Announced The recipients of AACC International’s Analytical Accuracy awards, based on 2015 check sample results, have been announced. This is the 17th year of the AACC International Analytical Accuracy Awards. Awardees receive a certificate suitable for posting and are published in the 2016 September-October issue of Cereal Foods World.

All subscribers to the AACCI check sample program series who include a proficiency rating option are eligible. Subscription to the proficiency program is not required but is highly recommended. To be eligible for an award, laboratories must have met all the requirements for results submission in the award year.

The award in each series is presented to the laboratory submitting the most accurate analyses (the accuracy score). The accuracy score is determined using the same statistical procedures used to evaluate the proficiency ratings. The required analyses in each check sample series are considered first. In addition, to encourage subscribers to include the results of optional analyses in their reports, these results are included if they improve the accuracy score.

Formal entry for the award competition is not necessary—all check sample subscribers in a given check sample series are automatically entered if they have submitted the required results on all samples for the award year.

The accuracy award results relate to the performance of the awardee’s analyst or laboratory and not that of other analysts and laboratories who may be equally qualified.

Check sample subscribers or others who would like more information about the AACC International Check Sample and Proficiency Rating Service are invited to visit www.aaccnet.org/resources/checksample.
