Significance and Use
3.1 This guide is suitable for sampling heterogeneous wastes.
3.2 The focus of this guidance is on wastes; however, the approach described in this guide may be applicable to non-waste populations, as well.
3.3 Sections describe a guide for the sampling of heterogeneous waste according to project objectives. describes an application of the guide to heterogeneous wastes. The user is strongly advised to read prior to reading and employing Sections of this guide.
3.4 contains an introductory discussion of heterogeneity, stratification, and the relationship of samples and populations.
3.5 This guide is intended for those who manage, design, or implement sampling and analytical plans for the characterization of heterogeneous wastes.
1.1 This guide is a practical, nonmathematical discussion for heterogeneous waste sampling strategies. This guide is consistent with the particulate material sampling theory, as well as inferential statistics, and may serve as an introduction to the statistical treatment of sampling issues.
1.2 This guide does not provide comprehensive sampling procedures, nor does it serve as a guide to any specification. It is the responsibility of the user to ensure appropriate procedures are used.
1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, 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.
