New Guide for Strategies for Surface Sampling of Selected Organic Compounds for Worker Protection

1. Scope

The promotion of knowledge, the development of test methods, practices, guides, and terminology pertaining to sampling and analysis of atmospheres, interpretation of data, the standardization of recognized and practiced methods for measurement of atmospheric quality, and sponsoring of discussions among those active in the study of air quality.
The work of the Committee will be coordinated with other ASTM Committees and other organizations having mutual interest.


exposure assessment; surface sampling; organic compounds; workplace air


This standard would be similar to the existing D7659 guide for sampling of surfaces for metals and metalloids, except that this guide would be for selected organic compounds. A guide of this nature is needed due to increasing emphasis by organizations such as ACGIH on sampling of workplace surfaces for exposure assessment and worker protection.

The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
