1.1    Statement of Policy

       Spectrum’s successful business philosophy is based on three criteria: internal
       employee support; client support and satisfaction; and quality data.
                                                                           Section 1.0
                                                                   Revised March 2012
                                                                               Page 2


1.1.1   Internal Employee Support - Spectrum’s commitment extends not only
        externally to its clients and community, but also internally to support its
        employees. This commitment focuses on communication and has resulted
        in the formation of policies of performance and resources for its
        employees. These policies also enforce the implementation of the quality
        assurance plan and will correct deficiencies that may develop without
        jeopardizing the quality of services. This commitment ensures that
        employees of Spectrum Analytical may perform their job functions
        without pressures that may adversely affect the quality of their work.

1.1.2   Client Support

               permitted through the use of Spectrum’s Internet Access
               Agreement (see Appendix B). This document protects clients by
               acknowledging authorized users by email address and discrete
               password and must be updated on a biannual basis.

        Reliability of any sample data is measured in terms of precision in
        executing methodologies and accuracy of surrogate and method spike
        recoveries. Data generated by Spectrum must pass all method-specific
        criteria established by NELAC, the Environmental Protection Agency
        (EPA) and by each state in which certifications are held. In situations
        where no criterion has been established, Spectrum may choose to develop
        in-house data quality objectives to ensure that reliable data is reported.
                                                                             Section 1.0

        Prior to accepting new bid proposals, the Director and the QA Department
        review the scope of work provided by the client to ensure all specifications

              laboratory will be required. If management determines that additional
              advertising is necessary, the laboratory will follow the current A2LA
              Advertising Policy with respect to the activities under the scope of
              accreditation and use of the A2LA symbol.

              Use of the NELAC Accredited logo is allowable with adherence to the
              following:

              a.     Where the NELAC logo is used it shall always be accompanied by

                     the prescribed formats and forms are retained.

3.0   Quality Assurance Objectives

      Spectrum follows the well-defined EPA standards for validation and data accuracy as the
      foundation of our QA/QC effort. The primary QA/QC objective is to develop, implement
      and maintain procedures for sample receiving, sample preparation, laboratory analysis,
      data validation and reporting that provide scientifically valid, legally defensible data.
      Spectrum supports this objective through QA/QC procedures throughout the laboratory,
      including all ancillary departments.

      Clients are encouraged to submit a blind duplicate sample at no additional charge, which
      will be tested as part of the routine samples. Testing the blind sample enables Spectrum
      to check the accuracy and consistency of our procedures and gives our clients the utmost
      possible degree of confidence in the data.




                                                                PY
      Spectrum is so confident in its accuracy that when applying for certification renewals, the




                                                            O
      required proficiency tests are run on a rush basis. This is done because 70% of our




                                                         C
      projects require an expedited turnaround time; therefore if we can run and pass the all-
      important proficiency tests using our rush procedures, we have further proven the
      accuracy of our ongoing technique.

          measurement system compared to the amount that is required.

      x   Comparability: a measure of confidence with which one data set can be
          compared with another.

3.2   Quality Assurance Communication Procedure

      Spectrum has instituted a Quality Assurance Communication Procedure (QACP)
      in order to strengthen the quality organization within the laboratory. The
      effectiveness of this procedure enables a timely response to problem situations
      and the creation of innovate concepts, enhancing the quality of both the analyses
      and the services provided by Spectrum.

3.3   Quality Assurance/Quality Control Review

      It is necessary to continually review and evaluate all laboratory procedures to
      ensure compliance with state and federal regulations. This includes procedures
      for data validation, daily laboratory operation, and corrective actions. The
      Laboratory Director, along with the QA Department and Directors, meet
      frequently to discuss if procedures need to be changed in order to meet
      compliance. If any procedure is changed a written memorandum is sent to all
                                                                                 Section 3.0

      document number, stored on the network and backed up regularly.

      The Laboratory Director and QA Department meet at the end of each calendar
      year to discuss the quality systems in place. The Department Managers are
      evaluated on the quality systems within the laboratory during the end of the year
      performance review. If necessary, managers meet with the Director and QA
      Manager more frequently to address quality issues.

3.4   Quality Control Acceptance/Rejection Criteria

Sources of samples can vary from residential or commercial locations, factories,
ambient air, stacks, soil vapor points, vapor extraction systems, landfills, and
other location where contamination is suspected.

The volatile air laboratory instruments are comprised of two Agilent 5973 and
two Agilent 5975 mass spectrometers interfaced with an Entech 7100 pre-
concentrator and a 7016 autosampler. There is an inventory of over 200
passivated sampling canisters and 100 passivated flow regulators. Canisters are
cleaned by a Entech 3100 sixteen position cleaner that heats the cans to 100
degrees C during the process.

Metals are analyzed using a ICP and a modified microwave digestion procedure.

        most common dilution is the internal standard to 50 PPBv, the calibration
        gas to 50 PPBv and 10 PPBv and the quality control gas to 10 PPBv.
        Other standards for special analytical work such as formaldehyde or
        haloethane are made from neat standards using the static dilution
        (expansion flask) technique. It is then introduced into the sampling
        container using the dynamic diluter.

      4.2.4   Sample Containers

              Sample may be collected in either passivated stainless steel canisters or
              tedlar bags. Two size canisters are used, 3.2 liters and 6.0 liters. Both
              canister and tedlar bags can be attached to the autosampler for analysis.
              Tedlar bags supplied by the laboratory are one-liter bags with a non-metal
              fitting. Other size bags with different fittings may also be analyzed.

              Passivated stainless steel containers are coated with a polymer coating that
              allows for the most inert surface possible (Normal summa canisters are
              just stainless steel). The passivated process is either called Silcosteel or
              Silonite.
              All canisters have vacuum gages attached to their valves for monitoring

4.3   Environmental Forensics

      A subsidiary of Spectrum Analytical, Inc. provides services in support of
      environmental forensic geochemistry studies associated with property transfer,
      insurance litigation from a release of contaminants, and cost/responsibility
      allocation at Superfund sites and other contaminated sites in terrestrial, marine or
      atmospheric environments. Through a variety of analytical tests and expertise in
      data interpretation/validation, Spectrum’s experts can provide answers to critical
      environmental forensic questions such as when and how contamination occurred,
      who caused it, what is the extent and level of contamination, and what is the
      validity of the data obtained.
                                                                           Section 4.0

Spectrum’s experts will work with the client to review and validate existing site
assessment and remediation data and devise a site-specific forensic plan that will
answer the questions posed by the client. The plan may include collecting
additional and defensible site assessment data and conducting a series of
analytical tests including isotope ratio measurements in order to form a strong line
of scientific evidence that can be used in a court of law.

Spectrum uses its extensive expertise in analytical chemistry to fingerprint
chemical mixtures and implement tracer techniques (presence/absence of a
chemical) and ratio techniques (relative amounts of chemicals) for forensic
applications. In addition, Spectrum draws on its site assessment and remediation
expertise to review with the client trend techniques (spatial and temporal




                                                    PY

4.4   Treatability Studies
                               O


      Treatability studies are used to evaluate existing or innovative remediation
                        TR




      technologies and develop site-specific design parameters for field application of
      the chosen technologies. Treatability studies are conducted at the bench-scale
                    N




      level and are used for the design of pilot or full-scale applications.
                O




      Bench-scale testing is a time and cost-effective way to evaluate site-specific
              C




      remediation options. The testing can determine the feasibility of a range of
       N




      technologies without resorting to expensive pilot tests. Design parameters that are
      U




      obtained from bench tests can result in significant cost savings during full-scale
      application.

      At the request of a client, the lab designs the treatability tests based on field
      information and the client's recommendations. The lab works closely with the
      client and other stakeholders (if necessary) to design a study that addresses the
      client's needs. The results of the bench-scale studies include method description,
      observations, data interpretation, conclusions and recommendations.

      Other types of studies that can be conducted in treatability labs include
      leachability studies of various contaminants. Tests such as TCLP and SPLP do
      not represent the true leachability of contaminants in real-life conditions and tend
      to overestimate leaching. Column studies can be conducted to mimic site-specific
                                                                               Section 4.0

5.0   Sample Handling

      The validity of a sample analyzed is at best only as good as the techniques used when
      collecting and handling said samples. Proper sample collection, handling and
      preservation techniques are imperative in order to impede the biological and chemical
      transformations that occur once a sample is removed from its parent source. The
      following summarizes steps taken to maintain sample validity.

      5.1    Sample Containers

             Pre-cleaned “Class A” sample containers, as required by EPA and NELAC, are
             provided by the laboratory at no charge to the client via Spectrum Analytical’s
             Sample Container Request Form (see Appendix D). Each shipment has available




                                                                PY

6.0   Calibration Procedures and Frequency

      Laboratory equipment and instrumentation must be calibrated at periodic intervals as
      outlined by governing agencies, applicable methodology, and/or by the manufacturer’s
      recommendations. The nature and frequency of such checks are summarized in each
      applicable SOP. All calibrations are traceable to primary standards of measurement.
      Where the concept of traceability of measurement to primary standards is not applicable,
      the laboratory provides evidence of correlation or accuracy of test results. The laboratory
      maintains appropriate records of all calibrations, instrument tunes, and in-service checks
      of instruments and other equipment.

      Each operational department keeps a maintenance logbook for each instrument to track
      routine maintenance due to instrument malfunction and/or troubleshooting. The

             please refer to laboratory SOPs.

      6.3    Standard Traceability, Preparation and Handling

             All standards used for calibrations are either ISO certified or certified by the
             supplier through analysis with EPA certified or NIST traceable weights and
             measurements.

             The commercially prepared stock standards require dilution to the working
             concentration. Comparing the new working level concentration against the
             previously prepared lot checks the accuracy of the dilution. The preparation of
             working standards may be tracked through the LIMS and Standard Preparation
             Logbook by date of preparation and/or assigned ID. The analyst preparing the

working standard records the weight/volume, concentration and vendor lot
number of stock standards used, the type of solvent used, his or her initials, the
date of preparation and the date of expiration. The vendor reference codes may
be cross-referenced to a separate inventory logbook that lists all neat or stock
standards received by the laboratory, the date of receipt, vendor, and lot number.

New volatile working standards are prepared from these stocks each week. Semi-
volatile stock standards are prepared every seven weeks and working level
standards are prepared every four to six weeks, depending on the laboratory
consumption rate. Pesticide stock standards are prepared yearly; working level
standards are prepared every two to four weeks, depending on the laboratory
consumption rate. Alachlor standard stocks are also prepared yearly, with working
level standards prepared approximately every two to three months, but not to

7.0   Standard Operating Procedures and Test Methods

      Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) have been created in accordance with EPA
      approved methods and state developed methods, such as the MA DEP EPH/VPH, Florida
      PRO and NJ TPH methodology. For procedures that do not have specific method
      references, Spectrum Analytical has developed and tested the procedures followed and
      then created the corresponding SOP.

      Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) are in place within each department in the
      laboratory for each method and/or procedure performed. They are designed to outline the
      procedures to be followed for the applicable method or administrative function. The
      Master List of all SOPs is maintained and kept within the QA Department. A copy of the
      SOP Master List, current at the time of this revision of this QA Manual is located in

             are due to the QA Manager within one month. SOP revision consists of the
                              TR



             following steps:
                           N




             A.     The Laboratory Director, QA Manager or Department Manager will assess
                    the need to update, revise, or create a SOP. In all cases a standardized
                       O




                    form must be completed stating the name of the SOP and the
                   C




                    modifications that wish to be made or the reason for creating a new SOP.
             N




                    The form must also explain why this is occurring; i.e. method changes,
                    internal procedure changes, or new instrumentation. This form is kept on
            U




                    file within the QA Department. See Appendix F for example of SOP
                    Modification Form.

                    If the form originates from the Director or QA Manager it is given to the
                    Department Manager. The Manager must then modify or develop the
                    applicable SOP and return it, with the form, to the QA Manager for review
                    within the designated timeframe.

                    If the form originates from the Department Manager it must be given to
                    the QA Manager for evaluation. The QA Manager and Director will either
                    approve or deny the request. When approved the Department Manager
                    must complete the modification or development within the designated
                    timeframe and return the SOP and form to the QA Manager for approval.
                                                                              Section 7.0

            When denied the form is kept on file by the QA Department with the
            corresponding SOP.

      B.     The Laboratory Director will conduct the final review of the SOP
             revision for approval and implementation. The SOP must include the
             date of revision and be signed and dated by the analyst or manager that
             has created or modified the document, the Section Team Leader or QA
             Manager and the Laboratory Director. The date of implementation is the
             date the SOP is signed by the Director.

            Once finalized, a controlled copy is issued to the applicable department(s).
            Also included is a SOP Acknowledgement Form (see Appendix F for an
            example). The QA Officer delivers the controlled copy and immediately




                                                       PY

7.2   Documentation of SOPs
               O
           C




      The QA Officer keeps the original document for all SOPs created in a three-ring
       N




      binder. Next to each original is a form to record the name of the individual that
      has received a copy of a SOP, the revision number and the date of receipt. This
      U




      is done so that when a new revision is created, the QA Officer knows whom to
      go to, collect the old revisions so that only current copies are kept within the
      operational laboratories. It is the responsibility of the QA Officer to keep this
      form updated.

      When modifications are made the revision number must be changed to reflect
      this. SOPs are numbered sequentially.

      SOPs must be kept within the laboratory unless the Laboratory Director gives
      permission for them to be taken off the premises.
                                                                             Section 7.0

      SOPs are available to clients upon request and are marked as an ‘Uncontrolled
      Copy’. The QA Manager is not responsible for collecting ‘Uncontrolled Copies’
      when a revision is made.

      All of the SOPs are copied onto a 47GB DVD. One copy is kept in fire-resistant
      safe and another copy is stored off-site. The DVD is updated with each new
      SOP or modification.

7.3   Test Methods

      Experienced analysts perform test methods. The complete procedure, including
      standard preparation, extraction/digestion, sample preparation, instrumentation
      used, calculations, and data interpretation/validation is documented in Standard




                                                      PY
      Operating Procedures (SOPs). A controlled copy of the current method is issued
      to the department and stamped with the method version name, the department




                                                   O
      name and date it was issued. Additionally, an electronic copy of the current




                                               C
      method is maintained on our network. The SOP Master List references the version
      currently used for each method and date the controlled copy was issued. When a
                                          D
      method version is changed, the out-dated controlled copy is collected by the QA
      department. In this way, the departments will only have access to the current
                                    E

8.0   Internal Quality Control Checks

      The analytical and quality control requirements for each sample are performed via
      the Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS). The LIMS is
      accessible from any workstation. A system of specific analysis codes is used to
      schedule the appropriate analytical procedures and the QC samples required to be
      processed with each batch of samples.

      8.1    Laboratory Quality Control Samples

             Various quality control (QC) procedures are associated with the methods
             run by the laboratory. These procedures are defined in the laboratory SOP
             for each method. The type and frequency of QC samples are specified by

      8.2    Method Detection Limits/Reporting Limits/LOD/LOQ

             Described here are Spectrum’s policies for the determination of MDLs, RLs,
             LOD and LOQ. For specific details, please refer to our SOP for MDL/LOD/LOQ
             and the analytical SOPs. These documents are available upon request. The
             Method Detection Limit (MDL) is defined as “the minimum concentration of a
             substance that can be measured and reported with 99% confidence that the analyte
             concentration is greater than zero” and is determined from analysis of a minimum
             of seven prepared blank spikes. Method detection limits are determined according
             to procedures given in 40 CFR Part 136, Appendix B. MDL studies are
                                                                           Section 8.0

performed during method validation studies to establish a base value. Updates to
the MDL on all instruments/methods will be performed every twelve months by
carrying out a new study or by completion of a Limit of Detection (LOD)
analysis. MDL updates area also done when new instruments are put in-line, if the
configuration of the instrumentation is significantly changed, or if the sample
preparation method is modified.

Limit of Detection (LOD) is defined as an estimate of the minimum amount of a
substance that an analytical process can reliably detect. An LOD is analyte and
matrix specific and may be laboratory dependent. Spectrum uses the
concentration of the Detection Check Standard (DCS) for the LOD. LODs are
analyzed either quarterly or annually, depending on the accrediting agency’s
requirements.

Limit of Quantitation (LOQ) is defined as the minimum levels, concentrations, or




                                                O
quantities of a target variable (e.g., target analyte) that can be reported with a




                                            C
specified degree of confidence or the lowest concentration that produces a
quantitative result within specified limits of precision and bias. For DoD projects,
                                       D
the LOQ shall be set at or above the concentration of the lowest initial calibration
standard. Spectrum defines the LOQ = RL. LOQs are analyzed either quarterly or
                                E
annually, depending on the accrediting agency’s requirements.
                             LL

For DOD projects, the requirement is that the LOQ be equal to or no greater than
                         O


3 times the LOD and that the lowest calibration standard determines the LOQ. In
                  TR



general, the lowest value Spectrum. may use, (for non-DOD) as a reporting limit
is the method detection limit. However, because the MDL as defined above is
              N




known to allow the reporting of false negatives, Spectrum generally uses a value
that is greater than the MDL. For organic and general chemistry tests, a standard
          O




at the reporting limit is generally included in the initial calibration. For metals
      C




tests, the reporting limit is a set value greater than the MDL (ideally three to five
 N




times the MDL). If samples are analyzed for compliance with regulatory
programs that have requirements for reporting limits that are greater than normal
U




reporting limits, the reporting limit may be adjusted up to the regulatory limit.
The MDL based on the above discussion, are dynamic values, which are expected
to vary as a result of the periodic detection limit studies. The reporting limit is a
static value (as a general rule) with the flexibility to be adjusted to meet project
requirements provided that it is not lower than the most recently determined
MDL. Although standard policies may be set for determination of normal report
limits, the specific report limit for each target must be reconsidered for every
sample by viewing the applicable analytical data.

Detection and reporting limits are adjusted to reflect dilutions, reductions in the
initial aliquot of sample prepared (due to limited volume/mass of original sample
or reduction in volume/mass prepared based on knowledge of the sample) or in
the case of soil samples, moisture content (unless directed otherwise by the client,
e.g., DoD). Dilutions are required to analyze samples within instrument or
                                                                                Section 8.0

      in increased limits.

8.3   Selectivity

      All data is thoroughly checked by the analyst and the manager for each
      department. Unusual or inconsistent results are confirmed either by running a
      duplicate or by other procedures specific to each method. These procedures are
      listed in the method SOPs. Also contained in the method SOPs are the acceptance
      criteria for calibration and mass spectral tuning.

      completed successfully. This includes MDL/LOD studies, IDC studies, and any

8.6   Estimation of Uncertainty

      Estimation of Uncertainty consists of the sum (combining the components) of the
      uncertainties of the numerous steps of the analytical process, including, but not
      limited to: sample plan variability, spatial and temporal sample variation, sample
      heterogeneity, calibration/calibration check variability, extraction variability and
      weighing variability.

      Estimation of Uncertainty in Measurements (Laboratory portion) shall be
      provided to clients upon request. Calculation of this uncertainty estimation will be
      done using the “Quality Control-based nested approach Uncertainty Spreadsheet”
      (DoD Navy Document).

      9.1   Data Reduction and Validation

            Data generated from the analyses of samples is reduced according to
            protocols outlined in each operational department’s SOPs. Each data
            reduction process for each laboratory is slightly different, but all follow a
            similar core procedure. The instrument operator first reviews the data
            generated at the instrument. This includes review of raw data and
            verification of all method and project specific QC requirements. In
            addition, the operator is responsible for adding data flag qualifiers and a
            notation on the bench sheet of any unusual situations or observations.
            The data is uploaded automatically from the instrument to a Laboratory

10.0   Performance and System Audits

       Both the internal and external audits are conducted regularly to maintain the quality
       objectives of the laboratory, to develop analysts’ proficiency and to evaluate management
       performance. Internal audits are conducted at a minimum of one per year and managed
       by the QA Manager. External audits are initiated by clients in the form of spiked samples
       or by other outside agencies through proficiency tests and on-site assessments.

       10.1   External Performance Audits

              Spectrum Analytical performs all necessary external audits to meet NELAC, DoD
              and State certification requirements.

       10.2   External System Audits

              State certification officers, other laboratories, and potential clients regularly audit
              Spectrum Analytical. Any state that Spectrum holds certification in or is
              currently obtaining certification from is eligible to conduct an audit at any time
              during normal business hours. Notification of a scheduled audit is requested to
              ensure that staff is available.

              Each department manager and the QA Manager record deficiencies noted during
              an audit. Corrections are made to comply with the regulations. Upon receiving
              the results of any audit, a meeting of all department managers is arranged to
              discuss the results. Unsatisfactory results are addressed and corrective actions
              presented. Any modifications that were initiated due to the audit are finalized as
                                                                                 Section 10.0

       appropriate SOP. This ensures compliance with the agency-mandated
       regulations.

10.3   Internal Performance Audits

       The QA Department conducts an annual internal performance audit according to a
       schedule issued at the beginning to the year. Any changes to the schedule must be
       documented along with the reason why. The audit monitors the quality of service
       from sample pick up through the entire analytical process. Audits are conducted
       in addition to the daily QA procedures. Audits reflect laboratory performance
       under normal operating conditions. The samples submitted for the audit are
       prepared by the QA Department, Technical Deputy Director or purchased through




                                                           PY
       an approved vendor. The samples are logged in under a fictitious client. The
       Laboratory Director, Technical Deputy Director and the QA Department are the




                                                       O
       only personnel aware of the audit samples. After the samples are analyzed and




                                                   C
       reported, the QA Department compiles all data and submits a report to the
       Laboratory Director. The Laboratory Director and the QA Manager then hold a
                                              D
       meeting with the department managers to discuss the results and any corrective
       actions that may be necessary. The results and any necessary corrective actions
                                        E
       are then filed with the QA Department. The QA Department itself is audited by a
                                     LL

       third party to ensure impartiality. This audit covers documents control, corrective
       actions and their effectiveness, review of data packages for completeness and
                                O


       accuracy, and compliance with regulatory agencies and internal policies.

       data, standards preparation sheets, analytical run logs, laboratory bench sheets and
        N




       a case narrative. At a minimum, 10% of all data packages are thoroughly
       reviewed for technical completeness and accuracy. Packages are prepared by the
       U




       analysts, reviewed by the departments and reviewed again by the QA manager or
       a designee from sample receipt to the final report. The Quality Assurance
       department monitors that method requirements are being strictly followed. Any
       QC failures, deviations or analysis issues are thoroughly documented in the case
       narrative and noted by the QA department.

       A client question regarding their results will prompt an investigation by the QA
       department. Clients are informed of the results of the investigation and if their
       data is affected in any way. If a quality issue is detected, a corrective action is
       presented.

10.4   Internal System Audits

       The Managerial Team conducts internal system audits a minimum of twice per
       year to ensure that all departments are operating accurately and observing all QA
       requirements. The following items are verified during an internal system audit:

       x   Standard Operating Procedures being followed

       x   Computer system/network archival done on schedule

       x   Chemical hygiene/safety practices being followed

       x   Sample handling/storage/disposal practices followed




                                                         PY

                                            D
       Department managers are apprised of any deficiencies in their department
       detected during the internal system audit. These are recorded and discussed at the
                                      E
       next management team meeting. A formal report is documented and filed with

10.5   Management Review
                         TR




       Results of both internal and external audits are verified by the QA Manager and
                     N




       submitted to the Laboratory Director for final review. Any data that falls outside
       established acceptance criteria results in an investigation. The outcome of the
                 O




       investigation, along with suggested corrective actions, is documented and
             C




       submitted to the Laboratory Director for review and final action. A follow-up
        N




       audit is done afterwards to ensure that the corrective action has been implemented
       and is effective. A response indicating corrective actions to be taken may be
       U




       required when errors or deviations are found in proficiency tests or during
       laboratory audits. Reports generated in response to external audits will address
       any problems found and the corrective actions to be taken. These will then be
       submitted to the agency conducting the audit, if applicable, and all appropriate
       laboratory departments for implementation.

       On an annual basis all Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) are reviewed by
       departmental management and modified as necessary for continuing suitability
       and effectiveness. Method SOPs are compared to the method being performed
       upon annual review. The outcome and corrective actions from all internal audits
       and assessments from external bodies are included in a Memo to the laboratory
       director. The resulting corrective actions are reviewed at a minimum annually to
       ensure they are being enforced. The following items are recorded and addressed
                                                                          Section 10.0

11.4   Documentation and Labeling of Standards and Reagents

       Standards and reagents are entered into the LIMS and printed upon receipt.
       Recorded are vendor name, date of receipt, expiration date, and lot number. The
       standard pages can be retrieved from the LIMS. In addition all certificates of
       analysis received from vendors are scanned into the LIMS with the associated
       unique standard/reagent ID assigned by the LIMS. Reagents are kept in their
       original containers whenever possible. If transferred, they are put into clearly
       labeled containers and marked with name of reagent/standard, date received, date
       opened, lot number, concentration, and expiration date.

       All standards and/or reagents used for calibration are either ISO certified or
       certified by the supplier through analysis with EPA certified or NIST traceable

11.5   Computers and Electronic Data Requirements
       U




       Spectrum’s data is managed by a laboratory information management system
       (LIMS) called Element DataSystem, produced by CequeLogic/Promium. It
       manages the data for all samples being processed by the lab, and operates on a
       Microsoft SQL server running Windows Server 2003.

       The LIMS is an all-inclusive data management system for the lab. Each sample is
       logged into the system upon receipt, and the LIMS tracks its progress as it travels
       throughout the lab. Backlog reports, QA/QC data reporting, data import from the
       instruments and final client reports is all possible using the LIMS. A detailed
       instruction manual on its use and operation is available in the IT Department.

       The LIMS also features configurable user rights and privileges, which protect data
       from accidental damage by an employee. Each employee is given only rights to
                                                                                 Section 11.0

       the portions of the program that they need to complete their job. This ensures that
       no employee can change or manipulate data that they do not have the
       responsibility to change.

       The computer network is Windows 2000-based and operates on a 100MB
       Ethernet LAN. All computers connected to the network are running either
       Windows 98, 2000, or XP.

       Internet access is provided by One Communications, and is made available
       exclusively to administrative personnel for research purposes. This research may
       consist of access to the DEP, other regulatory agencies, or instrument
       manufacturers. Internet access also allows for e-mail communication with clients,
       and allows Spectrum to serve their website on an in-house server.

11.6   Preventive Maintenance
             C
        N




       The operational condition of instruments is one of the keys to successful
       completion of analytical tasks. Spectrum’s commitment to instrument
       U




       maintenance assures clients that equipment will be available to generate the
       required data

       Each department has their own contingency plan as well as backup
       instrumentation, which virtually eliminates downtime. In order to prevent any
       possible cross contamination, instruments that are dedicated to volatile compound
       detection are physically separated from all other laboratory departments.

       Preventive maintenance as well as major instrument repairs can be accomplished
       on site. An in-house stock of critical spare parts allows for complete and rapid
       repair. Spectrum maintains service agreements with instrument manufacturers to
       further assure the operational viability of all in-house equipment.
       In case of major equipment failure approved subcontractor laboratories are
       available to perform analyses on short notice.
                                                                                Section 11.0

       The hardware tunes and calibration of the instruments are documented in the
       instrument logbooks kept in each area. If an instrument fails tuning or calibration
       criteria, hardware adjustments and/or appropriate maintenance is performed and
       documented. The analyst repeats the tune and calibration attempt. If the second
       attempt is successful, this is noted in the sequence logbook and sample analysis
       may proceed. Sample analyses may not proceed without an acceptable
       calibration.

       Qualified senior analysts perform routine preventive maintenance adeptly as part
       of the training program. A vendor-provided manual outlining the proper use of
       each instrument is maintained within the operational department. Included in
       these manuals are procedures for calibrating and performing preventive and

12.0   Routine Procedures Used to Evaluate Data Quality

       Acceptance criteria used are established within the specific method, or by Spectrum
       Analytical’s QA Department. Spectrum Analytical may establish acceptance criteria for
       any method performed that does not have recommended acceptance ranges. If QC data
       falls outside the acceptance range the information is documented and the QC standard
       must be rerun to verify that all data analyzed is valid.

       Quality control samples used to verify the data include method blanks, laboratory control
       spikes, calibration check samples, matrix spikes, matrix spike duplicates, and field
       duplicates. See Table 12.1 in Appendix H for Concentration Levels for QC Samples.

       12.1   Method Blanks

              calculated.

       12.3   Surrogate Recoveries

              Minimums of three surrogate standards are added to each organic sample
              requiring GC/MS analysis for volatile and acid/base neutral compounds. Samples
              are fortified prior to extraction, purging, and digestion or distillation. For
              pesticide analysis, at least one surrogate is added to each sample. Inorganic and
              organic matrix spikes and LCS spikes are similarly fortified with spike standard
              solutions containing target analytes of interest. The recovery of these standards is
              quantitatively measured during analysis, and historical records of the percent
              recovery for each sample are maintained in the control chart database. The
              statistically based warning and control limits for the LCS are updated regularly.
                                                                                Section 12.0

       Surrogate and spike compound recoveries must meet acceptance criteria before
       the analytical data will be reported and released. In some instances the sample
       matrix may produce interference, which adversely affect recoveries. Surrogate
       recovery interference must be confirmed by preparing and analyzing the sample
       again for confirmation. When a matrix spike test fails spike recovery criteria, the
       LCS must be analyzed. If the LCS analysis fails, the batch must be reprocessed;
       if it passes, the matrix effect is confirmed and a QA notice qualifies the affected
       data. Depending on the type of discrepancy identified, corrective action may
       involve reporting the data as is with a laboratory qualifying notice. When an
       analyte does not meet criteria for RPD in inorganic duplicates, a data qualifying
       flag accompanies the analyte result in accordance with the CLP reporting
       convention.

13.0   Corrective Actions

       Conditions that adversely affect the quality of analyses are classified as either isolated
       conditions or systematic conditions. A third condition is referred to as a bias or random
       error. The corrective actions implemented are determined by this classification. Random
       errors are unavoidable circumstances, which are reflected in the unpredictable
       fluctuations that occur during analytical sequences.

       Corrective action procedures are also referred to in each method specific SOP. Due to
       specifics of methodologies, the corrective actions for quality control issues for

SUBJECT:       Handbook Modifications Regarding Security

As you are aware, security within the laboratory is a major issue. This security is demonstrated
                                                      LL

to each company as they tour our laboratory and is used as a strong marketing tool. In support
of this security, each department was given its own password and key that will be used for staff
                                                O


entering the laboratory during off-hours or during the weekend.
                                       TR




To further ensure a secure facility, a new phone system has been installed. Again, all outgoing
and incoming phone calls will be monitored by individual departmental managers for security.
                                  N




Additionally, each employee has chosen a unique password that will be used when using a
                            O




computer. This will again add to the security of the laboratory.
                       C




After reviewing all of the above information, a new policy has been established within our
               N




laboratory. Attached to this memorandum, you will find information concerning the use of the
              U




phone system, computers, etc. It will be required that each staff member read and acknowledge
that they have read and understood the policy by signing the Acknowledgement Form attached.
Each form will be kept in your personnel file.

Thank you for your continued support and patience during these implementations.

petroleum hydrocarbons (weathered and unweathered fuel oils [#1, #2, #4, #6], motor/waste oils,
               N




gasoline, crude oil, and diesel) by gas chromatography (GC) in groundwater and soil using MeCl2
as a solvent extraction. Also, Dr. Tayeh developed methods for quantitative analysis of
              U




polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons by gas chromatography/Mass Spectrometry (GC/MS) and
polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and chlorinated hydrocarbons pesticides by gas
chromatography/Electron Capture Detector (GC/ECD). Dr. Tayeh performed all quality
assurance/quality control (QA/QC) and method detection limit studies related to these methods and
their implementation in the laboratory. Dr. Tayeh has also developed the new MA DEP methods
for petroleum hydrocarbon determination called Extractable Petroleum Hydrocarbon (EPH) and
Volatile Petroleum Hydrocarbon (VPH) along with his direct involvement with the Mass DEP
technical team in Lawrence and Boston, Massachusetts, to support the finalization of this particular
method.

Dr. Tayeh has been invited by several New England environmental laboratories to present various
aspects of new methodology being introduced to the environmental analytical field. Dr. Tayeh has
perfected EPA methods with the approval and support of the Massachusetts Department of
Environmental Protection.
