Method 1620 was developed by the Industrial Technology Division (ITD) within the United States Environmental Protection Agency's (USEPA) Office of Water Regulations and Standards (OWRS) to provide improved precision and accuracy of analysis of pollutants in aqueous and solid matrices. The ITD is responsible for development and promulgation of nationwide standards setting limits on pollutant levels in industrial discharges. Method 1620 includes inductively coupled plasma atomic emission (ICP) spectroscopy, graphite furnace atomic absorption (GFAA) spectroscopy, and cold vapor atomic absorption (CVAA) spectroscopy techniques for analysis of 27 specified metals. The method also includes an ICP technique for use as a semiquantitative screen for 42 specified elements.
