This Handbook includes quality assurance guidelines on stationary source emission measurements. Regardless of the scope and magnitude of the stationary source emission measurement program, there are a number of common considerations pertinent to the production of quality data. These common parameters are discussed in Section 3.0 of Volume III and include quality assurance guidelines in the areas of: (1) planning the test program; (2) general factors in stationary source testing; (3) chain-of-custody procedure; and (4) traceability protocol for gases used for continuous source emission monitors. The remainder of Volume III contains pollutant-specific quality assurance guidelines. Initially Volume III includes guidelines for the following pollutant-specific measurement systems: Section 3.5 Method 6 - determination of sulfur dioxide emissions from stationary sources, Section 3.6 Method 7 - determination of nitrogen oxide emissions from stationary sources, and Section 3.7 Method 8 - determination of sulfuric acid mist and sulfur dioxide from stationary sources. Source testers and managers responsible for stationary source emission measurements will find Volume III useful in planning quality assurance.
