The PAMS program began in early 1993 with an Implementation Teleconferencing Workshop for states and EPA regional offices to discuss the methodologies and programs available for assistance to support the enhanced monitoring regulations in the 1990 Clean Air Act Amendments. The teleconference was arranged by the Office of Air Quality Planning and Standards (OAQPS) with technical discussions from members of the Atmospheric Research and Exposure Assessment Laboratory (AREAL). Since then several states have commenced VOC measurement program particularly by the operation of automated gas chromatograph (gc) systems. Quality assurance programs have been implemented to track performance of the measurement procedures. A number of issues were discussed at the Teleconference concerning operational components of the gc methodology. An overview of these issues is presented in this paper along with laboratory test results to support the conclusions.
