PFAS California ELAP Accreditation Update

The California State Water Resources Control Board recently issued Orders to water systems approving USEPA Method 537.1 to analyze PFAS in drinking water. Specifically, the Order requires laboratories to be accredited for USEPA Method 537.1 and to be able to analyze all 18 PFAS analytes listed in the method. Only laboratories that could demonstrate accuracy and precision for all 18 analytes would be considered for accreditation. Orders were also issued requiring analysis of 23 PFAS analytes in non-drinking water matrices at landfill and airport location. All analytes must be analyzed in compliance with the Department of Defense (DoD) Table B-15 of the Quality Systems Manual (QSM) version 5.1 (or latest version). Only laboratories that could demonstrate accuracy and precision for all 23 analytes would be considered for accreditation.

Eurofins TestAmerica is pleased to announce that we have obtained California ELAP (Environmental Laboratory Accreditation Program) certification for the following:


  • Drinking Water by EPA Method 537.1 for 18 analytes

  • Wastewater by EPA Method 537M by Table B-15 for 23 analytes

  • Hazardous Waste (soils and non-potable water) by EPA Method 537M by DOD QSM Table B-15 for 23 analytes
