Manufacturers and users work together and in concert with regulatory bodies and corporate entities to identify, interpret, and comply with the appropriate standards. In some cases, new standards must be developed or existing standards must be revised to accommodate new industries, technologies, or expectations. The development and maintenance of credible technical standards is a living process and the content, status, and applicability of the dozens of standards described in the current review comprise a snapshot in time. A similar review would be useful for industrial hygiene instrumentation and procedures.
