The Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA's) Atmospheric Research and Exposure Assessment Laboratory (AREAL) at Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, established an audit program in 1977 to evaluate the performance of companies that conduct compliance testing using EPA reference methods. The audits check the participants' analutical accuracy in applying the analytical phase of EPA Reference Methods 3, 6, 7, and 19 and the calibration accuracy of the Method 5 control. console. By participating in this free and voluntary program, testing companies can compare their performance to the performance of other laboratories conducting similar measurements.
