Abstract
The Environmental Lead Proficiency Analytical Testing (ELPAT) Program is administered by the American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA), in cooperation with researchers at the Centers for Disese Control and Prevention (CDC), National Institute for Occupational Safety and health (NIOSH), and the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Office of Pollution Prevention and Toxics to evaluate and imporve the performance of laboratories conducting analyses associated with lead abatement. (1,2) Proficiency test samples are prepared by an AIHA contractor, Research Triangle Institute (RTI), using real-world paint chips, dusts, and soils. Quarterly samples are sent to participating laboratories is evaluated at NIOSH with sufficient time for laboratories to obtain repeat samples and to correct analytical problems before the next round of samples is sent.
