U.S. EPA Requires ASTM-E1527-13 Effective October 6, 2015

Effective October 6, 2015, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA), will accept ASTM-E1527-13 as the only acceptable standard for all Phase 1 Environmental Site Assessments (Phase 1 ESAs) performed as part of All Appropriate Inquiry (AAI).  

ASTM-E1527-13 is performed as part of the requirements outlined in AAI actions associated with liability protections under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA).

ASTM-E1527-13 replaces ASTM-E1527-05 which will now be discontinued as a standard for Phase 1 ESAs.  ASTM-E1527-13 provides more stringent requirements and requires  a thorough evaluation of potential indoor air impact from sub-surface vapor migration.

Alpha Analytical understands the time critical nature of Phase 1 ESA’s. We have the experience and know-how to partner with you to successfully complete your time sensitive projects. The Alpha Analytical team can assist you with best practices, chain of custody procedures, labeling and shipping to ensure compliance with state or federal regulatory programs. With locations in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts and New Hampshire, Alpha strives to be the best provider of Air Testing services in the United States.

We provide both delivery and pick up for our media in our service areas with few exceptions. Large or small, our new Eco-line fleet of vehicles is here to serve you.
