Round Robin Builds Testing Capacity
The Clean Cooking Alliance (CCA) is proud to have been a leader in the development, dissemination, and implementation of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) clean cooking standards since CCA’s inception. Key to successful implementation of the ISO standards is the ability of testing labs to confidently and accurately test and report against the new protocol and reporting framework. To that end, CCA launched a round robin testing program in 2021 to deepen the capacity of testing centers and to ensure they are harmonized in their abilities, so that stakeholders receive similar results no matter where in the world they send their stove to be tested.
Through direct contracts with nine labs in eight countries, CCA commissioned stove testing to generate more testing and reporting practice, and to establish a community of practice to compare results, identify inconsistencies, discuss challenges, and fill gaps in knowledge or practice. This report provides an overview of the program and its results.
