Abstract  

The IAEA conducted the IAEA-CU-2006-06 Proficiency Test (PT) on “The determination of major, minor and trace elements in ancient Chinese ceramic” in 2006. The results of this PT showed that of the 21 analytes reported by our laboratory 9 failed the precision criteria. Therefore the results reported by our laboratory along with the results of other laboratories which carried out analysis using neutron activation analysis (NAA) were studied. It was found that the major factor contributing towards data falling in the “Warning” category, failing the precision criteria was the high uncertainties cited in the certificates of the reference materials (RMs) used for quantification of data. In this regard, it is recommended that synthetic standards should be prepared and used on a routine basis especially for the measurement of the elements K, Eu, Lu, Ta, Tb and Yb.
