Environmental laboratory certification and inspection. Directs the Division of Consolidated Laboratories to enter into a memorandum of understanding with the Department of Environmental Quality to perform environmental laboratory inspections in conjunction with other inspections conducted by the Department as part of its duties to enforce air pollution, waste management, and water control laws. The bill removes obsolete references to national standards for laboratory certification adopted by the National Environmental Laboratory Accreditation Conference (NELAC) as that organization no longer exists. The bill also provides that laboratory facilities that only perform field testing are exempt from the certification by the Division of Consolidated Laboratories. Amends § 2.2-1105, of the Code of Virginia. Read the Bill »
