Since 1978, the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has implemented a certification program for laboratories performing drinking water analyses for compliance with regulations issued pursuant to the Safe Drinking Water Act. These laboratories include EPA Regional laboratories, certain Federal laboratories, Tribal Nation laboratories, principal State laboratories in primacy States, and drinking water laboratories in non-primacy States. This manual describes criteria and procedures that EPA uses in evaluating laboratories for certification. EPA has concluded that laboratories that adopt the approaches discussed in this manual will generate reliable analytical data. Consequently, EPA recommends that States follow these procedures and criteria in their certification decisions. This document is the fifth edition of the manual, describing the program's implementation procedures and technical criteria. It supersedes the Manual for the Certification of laboratories Analyzing Drinking Water, EPA-851-B-97-001 (March 1997).
"January 2005." "Supercedes EPA/570/9-90/008, April 1990, EPA-814B-92-002, September 1992, and EPA 570/9-90-008A, October 1991, EPA 815-B-97-001, March 1997."
