    1. Scope

    1.1 This practice describes field sampling of solid wastes for subsequent volatile organics analysis in the laboratory. This practice is also intended to apply to soils and sediments that may contain volatile waste constituents.

    1.2 Both the collection of the sample and the method of containing the sample for shipment to the laboratory are considered.

    1.3 This practice concerns only sampling methods to be used in the field; it does not cover laboratory preparation of containers or solutions or other laboratory techniques related to processing or analysis of the samples.

    1.4 It is recommended that this standard be used in conjunction with Guide D4687.

    1.5 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. For specific precautionary statements, see Section 6.
