    Significance and Use

    4.1 This guide is intended for use in evaluating the performance of field-portable electroanalytical or spectrophotometric devices for lead determination, or both.

    4.2 Desired performance criteria for field-based extraction procedures are provided.

    4.3 Performance parameters of concern may be determined using protocols that are referenced in this guide.

    4.4 Example reference materials to be used in assessing the performance of field-portable lead analyzers are listed.

    4.5 Exhaustive details regarding quality assurance issues are outside the scope of this guide. Applicable quality assurance aspects are dealt with extensively in references that are cited in this guide.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This guide provides guidelines for determining the performance of field-portable quantitative lead analysis instruments.

    1.2 This guide applies to field-portable electroanalytical and spectrophotometric (including reflectance and colorimetric) analyzers.

    1.3 Sample matrices of concern herein include paint, dust, soil, and airborne particles.

    1.4 This guide addresses the desired performance characteristics of field-based sample extraction procedures for lead, as well as on-site extraction followed by field-portable analysis.

    1.5 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, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

    1.6 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
