Formalized quality assurance (QA) program requirements for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) have been established for more than ten years. During this period, the environmental issues and concerns addressed by the EPA have changed. Other issues, such as hazardous waste clean-up and clean air, remain a focus of national environmental concerns. As environmental issues in the 1980s evolved, the QA program of the EPA was transformed through the use of Total Quality Management (TQM) principles to meet the needs of the 1990s and beyond. The QA program is structured to provide the necessary management and technical processes to effectively plan, implement, and assess the results of work performed in environmental programs.
