Because the blank filters used to collect airborne asbestos fibers in buildings and ambient air showed a high degree of asbestos contamination, a 'peer review' meeting was held to document causes and potential solutions to reduce or eliminate contamination of blank filters. The 'Peer Review of Asbestos' produced a workshop type document to assist analytical laboratories and field samplers in eliminating the filter blank contamination problem. Numerous positive suggestions made in the proceedings will enhance the quality assurance and quality control aspects of sample handling and analysis.
