Section 1401(1) of the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA), Public Law 93-523, defines 'primary drinking water regulations' to include 'quality control and testing procedures' to ensure compliance with maximum contaminant levels. Pursuant to the Act, the National Interim Primary Drinking Water Regulations (NIPDWR), 40 CFR 141 and 142 require that for compliance purposes, 'samples' will be considered only if they have been analyzed by a laboratory approved by the State except that measurement for turbidity and free chlorine residual may be performed by any person acceptable to the State, and the States must establish and maintain a program for certification of laboratories conducting measurements of drinking water contaminants. This manual describes evaluation procedures and minimum technical requirements recommended for certifying laboratories analyzing public drinking water supplies. In addition to identifying requirements that are critical to the generation of valid data, optional certification requirements have been included as guidance.
