Data collection activities performed for the Risk Reduction Engineering Laboratory (RREL) of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency are divided into four categories, depending on the intended use of the data. Quality Assurance (QA) Project Plans are written to ensure that project needs will be met and that quality control procedures are sufficient for obtaining data of known quality. Projects that are of sufficient scope and substance that their results could be combined with the results of other projects of similar scope to produce narratives that would be used for rule-making, regulation making, or policy making are identified as Category II projects. The Category II manual contains detailed descriptions of each of the 12 required elements of a Category II QA Project Plan. Also included are definitions and explanations of frequently used terms, examples of QA forms and charts, sample equations and numerous types of tables suggested for summarizing information.
