We participate in the EQA Platelet Dense Granule Proficiency Scheme offered through NASCOLA (www.nascola.com). It tests proficiency only in dense granule platelet deficiency analysis by EM. 

I am not aware of any other EQA programs in EM, but you may be able to get some further information from the Microscopy Society of America http://www.microscopy.org

We participate in the External Quality Assessment Scheme in EM Virus Diagnostics (EQA-EMV) administered through the Robert Koch Institut of Berlin, Germany.  It tests proficiency only on infectious disease identification.
