The aim of the Forensic Isotope Ratio Mass Spectrometry Proficiency Testing Scheme (FIRMS) is to enable laboratories performing isotope ratio analysis of a range of test materials to monitor their performance and compare it with that of their peers.

FIRMS also aims to provide information to participants on technical issues and methodologies relating to isotope ratio analysis.

The FIRMS scheme year operates from January to December. Further information about FIRMS, including test material availability, round despatch dates and reporting deadlines, are available on the current FIRMS application form.
