I take these kinds of CAP issues to mean, develop your own program for
proficiency testing and show how you have validated it, then show it to CAP,
they usually want to know that you have a plan in place even if it is
something you developed yourself.

Histonetter's I only received one reply on my question regarding "what
everyone is doing for proficiency testing of enzyme HC staining for
muscle"...espeically for CLIA.compliance, now that I will lose my
indepent reviewer. 

 My thanks to Jan Minchew for her reply. I am working from that for now,
though my sitiation somewhat different. .....but, I am finding it
particularly frustrating finding an answer to this question over the
last three months or more, that I have searched everywhere from the
histonet to the internet toevery friend I have doing EHC. Is it required
under CLIA? My auditor says yes..so I am trying to comply, though I
cannot fiind it specifically in any CLIA reg.

Who is the CLIA expert out there...and why is this not included in HQIP?
Can someone shed more light. Thx. CB
