For several years, the Interagency Steering Committee on Quality Assurance for Environmental Measurements (QAEM), has sponsored a workshop to develop consistent and scientifically defensible approaches to difficult issues related to the quality of data generated in support of, or compliance with, environmental regulations. QAEM, other scientists, managers and quality professionals work to bring about constructive changes to enhance the quality of environmental data and the scientific bases upon which decisions are made. Following introductory presentations, panels of experts discuss and debate critical aspects of the issues. Areas covered include (1) data review, (2) up-front-development of data quality objectives, (3) automated data review, and (4) performance-based methods.
