    Contractor laboratories handling radioactive materials for the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) are required to monitor the environmental exposure and publish annual reports for the Division of Operational and Environmental Safety (OES). In order to determine the validity of the data contained in these reports the Environmental Measurements Laboratory (EML) was requested to develop, coordinate, and conduct an Environmental Quality Assurance Program (QAP).

    There are four major phases to the DOE-OES-EML Quality Assurance Program: Sample collection and preparation, sample analyses at EML, quarterly sample distribution, and reporting the data returned by the participants.

    This paper discusses the various phases of the QAP and briefly discusses the data reported during the first year of the program.
