What I want to do or know

I know there are many ways to go about environmental monitoring, but only some have been approved by various agencies for official data. How can I find out which methods are approved for what types of monitoring?

The NELAC Institute has a lot of information on regulatory methods for environmental monitoring.

NECi's enzyme-based methods for nitrate analysis, for example, are accredited by the US EPA, USGS, & ASTM International: http://nitrate.com/nitrate-test-method-validations
