The aim of the updated AGS Guide to Environmental Sampling, which builds upon the original 2010 publication, is to provide practical information on creating a consistent approach across the industry.

It outlines best practice in several areas including: how to sample differing media; avoiding cross contamination; using blank, duplicate, and trip samples; and guidance on suitable sample containers, transport, and recording.
