Frequent Questions

What should permittees and laboratories do first?

Permittees must first confirm receipt of this package by March 21, 2014 to their state coordinator (pages 6-8) via postal mail or e-mail. Permittees must also send a copy of the enclosed instructions/checklists to all in-house and contract laboratories. The permittee specifies on the checklist which analyses the laboratory will perform. See Permittee Instructions (page 3) for more information. Upon receipt of instructions, laboratories must order samples from an accredited PT Provider (page 6). This should be done early to allow sufficient time to perform the required analyses and send ungraded results to the PT Provider prior to the close of DMR-QA Study 34 (July 11, 2014). See Laboratory Instructions (pages 4-5) for more information.
