The IQAP International Collaborative Exercises (ICE) programme is aimed at helping drug-testing laboratories worldwide assess their own performance and take corrective actions, when appropriate. The ICE programme has two groups:
  • The Seized Materials Group: The test samples in this group contain controlled drugs from actual seizures.
  • Biological Specimens Group: The test samples in this group contain controlled drugs and their metabolites in freeze-dried human urine.
