This report summarizes the results of meetings that were held to discuss guidelines and recommendations for conducting an intergovernmental agency laboratory accreditation program (LAP) for the chemical analysis of lead in paint, dust, and soil. The main factors to consider in establishing a LAP are the administrative structure, quality assurance policy, performance evaluation materials, method protocols, site inspections, and administrative rules. This report suggests guidelines for structuring a LAP for lead in paint, dust, and soil. It is recommended that existing programs be utilized as much as possible, but uniformity of requirements between the programs is needed. This can be accomplished by establishing an organization that monitors and coordinates the activities of the laboratory accreditors. The development of uniform requirements will create the potential for reciprocity between accrediting organizations for the LAP. The implementing agency will have to establish from already existing models, concepts of quality assurance to be expected from the accredited laboratories.
