In 1983, John Taylor published Validation of Analytical Methods, a fundamental treatise that has been expanded on by ASTM International, the American Chemical Society, the International Organization for Standardization, and the NELAC Institute. This presentation will cover the fundamental requirements of method validation and show why the EPA needs to take a new approach for any methods they publish.
