Environmental studies involving data collection activities conducted by or for the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) are required to undergo a review of their data collection activities. This review is usually in the form of an independent quality assurance (QA) audit. Those studies involving open-path Fourier transform infrared (OP/FTIR) monitoring are also expected to meet this requirement. To help evaluate the effectiveness of QA programs designed for OP/FTIR studies, an audit questionnaire was developed. This questionnaire provides a meaningful tool in assessing the study's compliance with Agency and laboratory QA requirements and currently accepted quality control (QC) procedures. This paper introduces this audit questionnaire and discusses the basis for its development.
