The AOCS Laboratory Proficiency Program (LPP), formerly the Smalley Check Sample Program, is the world's most extensive and respected collaborative proficiency testing program for oil- and fat-related commodities, oilseeds, oilseed meals, and edible fats. More than 500 chemists participate to verify their lab’s quality control.

Participants use  AOCS or similar methods for sample analysis and then compare their results with a large cross-section of other laboratories using the same methods and samples.

To minimized delays, seizure, clearance, and third party intervention, please include all necessary government paperwork (i.e. Import Permits or Phytosanitary Certificates) with your order to AOCS. Any additional charges incurred from these requirements will be borne by the recipient.
