Significance and Use

5.1 Environmental (including workplace) samples obtained during the assessment or mitigation of lead hazards from buildings and related structures are analyzed to determine lead content in media of concern. This test method is intended for use with other ASTM standards (see 2.1) that address the collection and preparation of samples (airborne particulate, dusts by wipe and micro-vacuuming, dried paint chips, and soils) that are obtained during the assessment or mitigation of lead hazards. This test method may be used to analyze samples collected from various environments, such as workplaces, buildings, indoor or outdoor settings, construction sites, housing, and so on.

5.2 This test method may also be used to analyze similar samples from other environments such as toxic characteristic extracts of waste sampled using Guide E1908, and soil and sludge as prepared for analysis using U.S. EPA SW-846 Test Method 1311 (5).

5.3 This test method can be relied upon by laboratories seeking accreditation for lead analysis by means of GFAAS.

Scope

1.1 This test method covers the determination of lead (Pb) in airborne particulate, dust by wipe and micro-vacuuming, paint, and soil collected in and around buildings and related structures using graphite furnace atomic absorption spectrometry (GFAAS).

1.2 This test method contains directions for sample analysis, as well as quality assurance (QA) and quality control (QC), and may be used for purposes of laboratory accreditation and certification.

1.3 No detailed operating instructions are provided because of differences among various makes and models of suitable GFAAS instruments. Instead, the analyst shall follow the instructions provided by the manufacturer of the particular instrument.

1.4 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

1.4.1 Exception—The SI and inch-pound units shown for wipe and micro-vacuuming sampling data are to be individually regarded as standard for wipe and micro-vacuuming sampling data.

1.5 This test method contains notes which are explanatory and not part of the mandatory requirements of this standard.

1.6 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.

1.7 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.
