ABSTRACT

The presentation provides information to ensure data quality for field sampling and measurements. Adopting the TNI field activity standard is one way to ensure the generation of known and documented data. The data generated for any regulatory or self monitoring is only as good as the sampling design and collection process. The laboratory cannot improve the data quality if the sampling design and collection is not performed by a competent organization. Ensuring the sample is representative of the material and fit for purpose are integral parts of the design and collection process. The TNI standard development process ensures all stakeholders can collaborate and provide input to the standard.
