EMQN strives to keep EQA fees as low as possible and we appreciate that the costs of EQA can be difficult for some laboratories. 

EMQN Support for Laboratories Based in Evolving Economies

Laboratories from countries defined and listed in the International Monetary Fund (IMF) World Economic Outlook as emerging and developing economies can apply for a reduction of the EQA fees. These laboratories can take advantage of a significant reduction in EQA fees for a period of 4 years, provided the laboratories agree to continue to participate in EQA at full cost thereafter.
