ELAP updates FOA for hazardous waste and drinking water













In response to a request from the Division of Drinking Water and in coordination with the Underground Storage Tank programs and the Department of Toxic Substances Control, the Environmental Laboratory Accreditation Program (ELAP) updated its field of accreditation (FOA) offerings for hazardous waste and drinking water analysis. ELAP updated the following offerings in FOA Table(s) 102, 105, 114, 116, 117, 130, 132, and 133. In response to requests from the Division of Drinking Water, the following FOAs were added: Table 102: Inorganic Chemistry in Drinking Water
