The Weqas Interactive service (https://reports.weqas.com) allows online access to reports and result entry for your laboratory registered programmes. For security reasons, we must receive appropriate authorisation for all requests relating to your labs access. This should ideally be provided by the Head of Department that is registered with us, otherwise authorisation may be provided by the other known contacts for your lab (e.g. Report / Sample Contact).
All Website Registration requests can now be processed online: removing the need for the paper forms. There are different forms for different needs.
When registering someone for access level, please consider the type of access they are likely to need.
There are three types of access:
On the forms you will see a dropdown box which allows you to specify the access level required for each user. If a user level is set to Section Access, the section name(s) must be specified. If Lab Access is selected, ‘Name of Section(s)’ can be left blank.
The Head of Department is deemed to be the person who has overall responsibility for EQA registration and performance and who Weqas will contact in relation to poor performance issues.
Ensure this person is aware of your request before submitting the form, as an email will automatically be sent to them to authorise your registrations.
Our online forms allow you to add additional rows in order to request multiple changes on the same form. The + and – buttons (seen above) can be used to insert and remove additional rows.
Some forms, such as ‘Add / Edit / Delete A User’, have additional dropdown boxes above or before each row to select the type of change you require for that user. This will allow you to request different types of changes on the same form.
Once you have entered all the relevant details, you can then submit the form. What happens next depends on the form, the table below illustrates the approval process followed for each type of form.
