EPA Publishes Latest List of UCMR3 Laboratories

EPA has posted an updated list of laboratories approved for analysis to support the upcoming monitoring requirements under the third Unregulated Contaminant Monitoring Rule (UCMR3). The listing indicates what laboratories are approved for which specific methods. These laboratories met the UCMR 3 Laboratory Approval Program application and Proficiency Testing criteria for the methods indicated. The laboratories’ approval status indicates they have demonstrated specific capabilities using the method(s). EPA may revoke a laboratory’s approval status if the laboratory does not adhere to quality assurance/quality control (QA/QC) procedures and criteria, or fails to post data to SDWARS. If EPA revokes approval, the laboratory’s name will no longer appear on this list.
