The ILR is the Individual Laboratory Report. Once assessment is complete, participants will be informed that their provisional ILR is available for download from their EMQN account. The provisional ILR is subject to change even if a laboratory does not make an appeal. This is because the finding of an appeal, or other considerations, may lead to changes in how all participants have been provisionally marked.


Provisional IRLs are clearly marked as provisional.

When do I get my ILR?

The reports are issued in three stages:

  1. Provisional ILR is published
  2. Appeals process takes place (unless the EQA is a Pilot)
  3. Final ILR is published


All contacts of an EMQN account will be notified when these are available so, please ensure your contact details are up to date.
