Abstract
The goal of the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) Subcommittee E06.23 on Abatement and Mitigation of Lead Hazards in Buildings was to set and publicize national consensus standards for the reduction of lead (7439921) hazards in the vicinity of buildings and other structures. Once developed and published, the ASTM standards were for use by federal agencies to implement their regulations and guidelines concerning lead hazards. Most of the subcommittee was made up of members from private industry including field testers, abaters, renovators, carpentry and painting workers, risk assessors, laboratory managers, product developers and salespeople, government contractors, unions, and others. Often ASTM standards were written into regulation papers and contracts and therefore were used as legal documents. Nineteen standards were published by the E06.23 Subcommittee, including standards for sample collection and analysis of lead content, encapsulation of leaded paint, quality assurance, and field monitoring. Several other draft standards were being developed including in-situ X-ray fluorescence testing for lead in paint, performance criteria for lead spot test kits, worker protection, field based quantitative determination of lead in environmental media, criteria for reference materials, and lead paint removal.
