Good environmental management depends on accurate and reliable environmental information. This information includes monitoring data obtained from the analysis of air, water, wastewater, waste, soil and other samples by analytical laboratories.
Alberta Environment and Parks is implementing the Laboratory Data Quality Assurance (LDQA) Policy to ensure that laboratory data submitted to the department is accurate and reliable.
This policy was developed over a two-year period in consultation with our stakeholders
and with the help of comments from the public. Our stakeholders include laboratories,
industries, municipalities, environmental groups, consultants and various associations.
