Quality Management

The University of Washington and the collaborating institutions in the UW CCAR are committed to producing quality environmental exposure and health data and analyses. As such, we will implement a quality assurance (QA) program for all monitoring, data gathering, sample and data transferring, laboratory analysis, data processing, and data analysis efforts.

A key function of the QA program will be to document the methods used to collect and analyze data so that it will be scientifically valid and defensible. This Quality Management Plan “QMP” describes the elements of the quality system to be implemented by the UW CCAR and serves as the umbrella document under which individual quality activities are conducted.
