This C version of Method 1668 revises the quality control (QC) acceptance criteria in EPA Method 1668B to allow the upper recovery limit for some congeners to be above 100 percent, to revise the estimated method detection limits (EMDLs) and estimated minimum levels of quantitation (EMLs) to MDLs and MLs, and to makes other changes summarized below. The QC acceptance criteria developed in the interlaboratory method validation study of 1668A, and published in version B of the Method, did not allow the upper recovery limit for some congeners to be above 100 percent. The criteria have been revised based on data from the interlaboratory study and data from two laboratories with extensive experience in use of Method 1668A. TestAmerica, Knoxville, Tennessee and AXYS Analytical Services, Ltd., Sidney, British Columbia, Canada provided this new data. These two laboratories and Battelle- Columbus provided MDLs for the congeners and congener groups, which EPA pooled and used to replace the EMDLs and EMLs in Table 2 of Method 1668B with the MDLs and MLs in Method 1668C.
