General Registration Fees

UK NEQAS for Molecular Genetics is a not for profit, self funding organisation. The Scheme recognises the financial constraints being imposed upon many laboratories and therefore the majority of fees have been frozen and any increase imposed has been minimised.

UK NEQAS for Molecular Genetics is hosted within the Department of Laboratory Medicine, The Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh, NHS Lothian, Edinburgh, UK therefore the Scheme invoicing will be performed by NHS Lothian. If you require a purchase order to register for the EQA scheme then please contact the Scheme for account details.

Please note that refunds are only payable under exceptional circumstances.

There is an annual registration fee per laboratory (regardless of the number of schemes):

  • UK laboratories: £150
  • non-UK laboratories: £200

This fee remains unchanged from 2012. The annual registration fee will be waived if the laboratory is only participating in pilot EQAs.
