Active Standard ASTM D7822 | Developed by Subcommittee: D22.04
Book of Standards Volume: 11.07
Significance and Use
5.1 This practice is intended for the collection of samples of skin contamination to be used for the estimation of dermal exposure to metals and metalloids. The practice is meant for use in the collection of dermal samples that are of interest in hazard evaluation, risk assessment, or other purposes. This practice is meant to provide a standardized means for estimating exposures to body parts that are potentially exposed via dermal contact with airborne or surface contaminants, or both.
1.5 This practice offers a set of instructions for performing one or more specific operations. This practice cannot replace education or experience and should be used in conjunction with professional judgment. Not all aspects of this practice may be applicable in all circumstances. This practice is not intended to represent or replace the standard of care by which the adequacy of a given professional service must be judged, nor should this practice be applied without consideration of a project’s many unique aspects. The word “Standard” in the title means only that the practice has been approved through the ASTM consensus process.
