The table below outlines the shipping costs accruing for sample delivery. These costs are invoiced directly upon ordering. Samples will be sent at different times, depending on the period during which the proficiency tests are carried out. The shipping costs are incurred for each of these shipments. This may result in double, triple or quadruple shipping costs if proficiency tests from different seasons are ordered at the same time. No shipping costs are applied to metallography proficiency tests, since in these cases, digital images will be provided to the customers.
