In response to participant feedback, IQMH will be changing the packaging used to ship proficiency testing survey material. Starting in October 2019 and continuing into 2020, IQMH will be gradually rolling out two changes:
Material that was previously shipped to participants in a Styrofoam mailer will now be shipped with the addition of an outer corrugated box, decreasing risk of damage to the material during transit:
To ensure packages are not left at shipment docks for extended periods of time, and material stability is not compromised, a label is placed on the outer box advising participants to open immediately and store contents as appropriate. This label has been redesigned. Participants should open packages immediately and follow storage instructions indicated on the package insert.
Participants are encouraged to share these new packaging changes with their receiving department.
