 In this study, the two-sided Empirical Bayes test (EBT) rules for the parameter of continuous one-parameter exponential family with contaminated data (errors in variables) are constructed by a deconvolution kernel method. The asymptotically optimal uniformly over a class of prior distributions and uniform rates of convergence, which depends on two types of the error distributions for the proposed EBT rules, are obtained under suitable con- ditions. Finally, an example about the main results of this paper is given.
