The document represents the model Quality Assurance Project Plan (QAPP) for the National Air Toxics Trends Stations (NATTS). The Office of Air Quality Planning and Standards (OAQPS) staff developed this Model QAPP to serve as an example of the type of information and detail necessary for the documents that will submitted by State, Local or Tribal Air Toxics Monitoring Programs (ATMP) involved in the NATTS. This model QAPP was generated using the EPA QA regulations and guidance as described in EPA QA/R- 5, EPA Requirements for Quality Assurance Project Plans and the accompanying document, EPA QA/G-5, Guidance for Quality Assurance Project Plans. Data in this QAPP should not be used by organizations to meet the data quality needs for ATMP, with the exception of Chapter 7, which describes the Data Quality Objectives (DQO) for the national program. Since all NATTS will be part of this trends network, OAQPS requires that the DQOs be identical. If an agency wishes to add DQOs to Chapter 7 that go beyond the needs of the national trends objectives, then this should be addressed in Chapter 7 and 24. Chapter 24 discusses the Data Quality Assessments (DQAs) for a local objective, which is not based on the DQOs in Chapter 7. Please note that Chapter 24 states that the national DQA will be performed by OAQPS. The Standard Operation Procedures (SOPs) listed in the Table of Contents are a guidance document developed for OAQPS for the NATTS.
