Chemistry Expert Committee
The mission of this committee is to improve the technical quality of environmental testing methodologies by providing tools (e.g., detection, quantitation and calibration) that assure the quality of data, which may be adopted by federal and state regulatory agencies. It is important that a balance between impact on laboratories and improvement in technical quality be maintained during this process.
