Is proficiency testing required when using outside lab?

Is it required that proficiency testing be completed using an outside lab? If the SME, for instance, verifies their performance with an outside lab, then we have the SME run a test side by side with each technician, can we document that as their proof of proficiency/competency?

While PT performance can be used as objective evidence of individual competence, the laboratory needs to participate in a formal scheme or an alternative external proficiency assessment. Please have a look at https://community.advisera.com/topic/pt-ilc/ which will provide more information on the mandatory requirement for the laboratory to participate in proficiency testing (PT).
