Abstract

Measurements may be made in order to correlate decisions with environmental policy or to investigate environmental processes. Modern laboratories have various means of controlling and verifying the accuracy of their results, which is of increasing importance in view of the high degree of automation of measurements and the considerable output of information. Principles of quality control used in a modern laboratory are illustrated, and examples of improvements in laboratory performance are given. Typical examples are the determination of chlorinated biphenyls, chlorinated pesticides and vapours of benzene in working place air.
