As part of the radiation quality assurance program conducted by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, calibrated radionuclide solutions are distributed to participating laboratories for instrument calibration and yield determinations. Laboratory performance studies involving the analysis of radionuclides in environmental media are also conducted. A summary is given of the results of the water cross-check program for 1974. Examination of these results reveals that gross beta is the most difficult (44 percent within the control limits) and tritium is the least difficult (90 percent within the control limits) for the laboratories to analyze. These results indicate the need for improvement in analytical procedures for the radionuclide studies.
