Case Study: Accredited laboratories support chronic beryllium disease prevention program regulation

Accredited laboratories support chronic beryllium disease prevention program regulation

The US Department of Energy (DOE) has amended its chronic beryllium disease prevention program regulation. The amendments improve and strengthen the current provisions and continue to be applicable to DOE Federal and contractor employees who are, were, or potentially were exposed to beryllium at DOE sites. Samples that are collected must be analysed by an accredited laboratory to ensure that the testing is carried out by a competent body.

Further information is available on the federal register.
