EPA Seeks Comment on Draft Environmental Data Quality Standards and Guidance
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has published Federal Register notice seeking public comment on EPA's draft Quality Standard for Environmental Data Collection, Production, and Use by Non-EPA (External) Organizations and two associated draft QA Handbooks: 1) draft Handbook for Preparing Quality Management Plans (QMPs) and 2) draft Handbook for Preparing Quality Assurance (QA) Project Plans (QAPPs). The draft Standard provides greater clarity about QA requirements for environmental data projects; addresses modeling activities, which were not specifically addressed in the previous EPA Order (CIO2105.0), and provides greater alignment with the EPA Quality Policy (CIO 2106.0). Comments must be submitted to EPA on or before January 25, 2013.
