Multi-Agency Radiological Laboratory Analytical Protocols (MARLAP): New Practical Training on MARLAP Part I
Hosted by U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
National Air and Radiation Environmental Laboratory (NAREL)

MARLAP Part I is intended for planners and managers of radioanalytical projects and laboratory personnel who support them. Part I provides the basic framework of the directed planning process, including project planning, key issues to be considered during the development of analytical protocol specifications, developing measurement quality objectives, understanding the qualitative and quantitative components of method uncertainty, project planning documents and their significance, obtaining laboratory services, selecting and applying analytical methods, evaluating methods and laboratories, verifying and validating radiochemical data, and assessing data quality.

This three-day course will cover all aspects of radiochemical project planning and will provide practical examples, exercises, and case studies. The course will conclude with a comprehensive exercise where participants will apply what they learned to evaluate indoor and ambient air quality following the release of Am-241 from a radiological dispersion device (RDD, or “dirty bomb”).

Who should attend this training? - Project Managers and planners for radiation sites and facilities working on projects requiring radioanalytical data for decisionmaking; and laboratory personnel working on radioanalytical projects.

*This course is offered free of charge.*
