The primary objective of the report is to provide guidance for choosing cost-effective QA/QC programs for chemical laboratories. It describes general principles of QA/QC, the specific tools available, and the information needed to choose appropriate tools for specific needs. The report does not give detailed discussions of how to apply each quality control tool; references are given for more detailed information. The major tasks of the project were: A literature search to identify current QA/QC practices for inorganic and organic chemical methods; An evaluation of ongoing quality assurance programs; Development of a model to determine the type and level of QA/QC effort required for various uses of particular analytical methods.
