    Who Should Attend

    Former or current participants of the "Statistics in ASTM Standard Test Method Development, Application, and Quality Assurance Course" sponsored by ASTM D02 and listed on the ASTM Website, or, those with a good working knowledge of Statistical Control Charts as applied to Test Method Performance Quality Assurance monitoring.


    Course Objective

    This is a hands-on workshop offered to those wishing to have a Cold Eye review by ASTM D6299 Subject Matter Expert on their current control chart data and work process, with a focus on EPA Tier III SQC compliance readiness.


    Course Outline

    The workshop provides:

    • A brief overview of the SQC requirements in CFR 80.47
    • A general question period from participants
    • An open forum review and critique of participant-supplied SQC data and control chart from a technical and D6299 compliance perspective.

    Duration will depend on number of participants, which will be capped on a first-come-first-serve basis until maximum limit is reached based on a one-day workshop completion target.

    This workshop is intentionally scheduled to take place immediately on the day after the Statistics in ASTM Standard Test Method Development, Application, and Quality Assurance Course. The Statistics course is also available as an E-Seminar.
