The methodology described in this report was developed as part of a task funded by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to collect information needed for the development of federal guidance on testing paint for lead. The methodology was specifically used to develop testing guidance that is supplemental information to be used in conjunction with Chapter 7 of the HUD Guidelines for the Evaluation and Control of Lead-Based Paint Hazards in Housing (PB95-268553). Information collected from an EPA/HUD field study conducted in 1993 provided background for Chapter 7 of the HUD Guidelines. This field study came about due to the passage of Title X (Section 1017 of the Residential Lead-Based Paint Hazard Reduction Act of 1992), which mandated that the federal government establish guidelines for lead-based paint hazard evaluation and reduction. From the field study came detailed information EPA and HUD needed in order to provide up-to-date field testing guidance for portable X-ray fluorescence (XRF) instruments. The results from the field study are reported in two documents (PB97-115760 and PB96-125026).
