2023 Physical Match (Metal Substrate) Proficiency Test

This test is designed to challenge the forensic examiner who examines broken metal materials to determine if the fragments physically fit together and were therefore once one piece. Tests will consist of several fragments of the same type of material. As the test is designed to test the examiner's ability to perform physical match comparisons without regards to the type of material, no additional chemical or physical comparison is requested in the examination. Any fracture matches distributed in the test are examined and photographed by a court qualified examiner.  Test will be distributed in January 2023. Order deadline is November 15, 2022.

This test is included on the FTS Scope of Accreditation to ISO/IEC 17043:2010.
