This document provides conceptual guidelines for the development, implementation and evaluation of research task quality assurance plans for the staff of the Health Effects Research Laboratory (HERL/RTP) of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Research Triangle Park, North Carolina. It is designed to assist project officers in applying quality assurance concepts to each phase of a research task, from the initial planning through final report preparation. It is designed to assist management staff in evaluating these plans in the implementation of Agency QA policy. The guidelines describe the HERL-RTP QA organization and the QA responsibility of both management and technical research personnel in relation to the mandatory Agency QA policy and task data quality requirements. Aspects of research tasks that must be considered by project officers in the development or review of QA elements are treated in detail. Specific guidelines for atmosphere generation, dose monitoring and animal research are also included.
