||Laboratory and analytical method performance of lead measurements in paint chips, soils, and dusts

||The U.S. National Lead Laboratory Accreditation Program (NLLAP) recognizes laboratories capable of analyzing lead in paints, soils and dusts. NLLAP requires successful participation in the Environmental Lead Proficiency Analytical Testing (ELPAT) programme. This study summarizes the performance of laboratories over the first three years (1992-1995) of the ELPAT programme. During this period, 92 to 93% of participating laboratories met the ELPAT proficiency criteria for paint chips, soils and dust wipe analysis. Differences in laboratory performance, analytical techniques and instrumentation are discussed.
