Under Part 53 of Title 40 of the Code of Federal Regulations (40 CFR Part 53), the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency designates specific ambient monitoring methods and analyzers as reference or equivalent methods acceptable for use in National Air Monitoring Stations (NAMS), State and Local Air Monitoring Stations (SLAMS), and Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) monitoring. Such designation requires that extensive performance test of the analyzer be carried out by the manufacturer (or other applicant) prior to designation. After designation, EPA carries out further tests of the analyzer. These EPA tests include performance tests as well as comparative tests to evaluate the performance, reliability, and operational peculiarities of the analyzer with respect to other analyzers monitoring the same pollutant. This report summarizes both the manufacturer's predesignation test results and the EPA post designation test results of the currently designated ozone analyzers. The data is presented in tabular and graphic form, with specific conclusions concerning any particular analyzer left to the reader.
