CEQAS is a not-for-profit organisation. Annual charges are based on the full cost of providing EQA services and operating the Scheme. The current tariff of charges is EQA based and, as such, subject to continuous review. Refund of EQA charges is only payable in exceptional circumstances and at the Scheme Director's discretion.
Pilot EQAs are offered at a reduced charge.
Laboratories will be invoiced by the Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. Invoices will be sent by email directly to the 'Bill Payer' or 'Primary Contact' given in the laboratory's contact details. It is the responsibility of the laboratory to ensure that these contact details are correct at all times.
If a participant requires a Purchase Order Number to be quoted on the CEQAS invoice they must add this number online when enrolling or communicate it to the CEQAS office at the time of enrolment.
