This Handbook includes guiding principles and recommended procedures for achieving quality assurance in air pollution measurement systems. Vol. I contains brief discussions of elements of quality assurance. Expanded discussions of technical points, including sample calculations, are included in the appendices. The discussion of each element, therefore, is structured to be brief and at the same time, to highlight its most important features. The elements of quality assurance discussed in Vol. I include document control, quality assurance policy and objectives, organization, quality planning, training, pretest preparation, preventive maintenance, sample collection, sample analysis data reporting, procurement quality control, calibration, corrective action, quality cost interlaboratory and intralaboratory testing, audit procedures, data validation, statistical analysis of data, configuration control, reliability, quality reports to management, quality assurance manual and quality assurance plans for projects and programs. Organizations developing and implementing their own quality assurance plans will find Vol. I useful for general guidance.
