The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) implemented an innovative project for assisting neutron activation analysis laboratories in improving the validity of their results by feedback workshops for discussion of results from participation in interlaboratory comparisons rounds in 2010. The participants learned during these meetings to identify the most probable sources of errors in their analytical procedures and how to implement corrective actions to prevent reoccurrence. The outcome of successive rounds between 2010 and 2018 is discussed and experiences during the feedback workshops are given. The quantitative evaluation of the results shows an overall improvement in satisfactory performance. Moreover, there is a clear indication that improvements are consolidated in most laboratories but also stimulate laboratories to develop to a higher level of excellence. Regional differences in performance are also analysed.
