Dade Moeller performs environmental laboratory assessments and audits to support laboratory certification and to verify compliance with state and federal regulations.
Dade Moeller uses stringent procedures that are updated regularly to remain at the forefront of industry standards for depth and completeness of coverage. Our checklists are based on the NELAP Quality System and cover the full range of industry-approved environmental analytical methods.
Dade Moeller also performs ISO Audits for laboratories that are conducting chemical analyses or supporting national security programs, food and drug programs, performance testing, and environmental analyses.
The Dade Moeller Data Quality Assessment Process is designed to assure compliance with state and federal regulations, Systematic Planning (formerly DQO) process, and planning documents. We work with the client and laboratories to establish evaluation criteria (ideally during the planning phase). Afterward, qualified personnel review the data against the criteria.
Data Quality Assessment for environmental projects is a two-step process.
Dade Moeller will analyze and validate the data so that that the client will be able to correct deficiencies, if any, and comply with all regulatory requirements.

This project was extended for the maximum allowable period of performance (3 years) because of our commitment to LELAP’s success. Consequently we were awarded a second three year contract to provide additional assessor support. As part of the past and current Louisiana contracts, Dade Moeller assessed approximately eighty environmental laboratories and ten air emission testers seeking accreditation from LELAP. In addition reviewed and approved most assessment reports written for LELAP applicants by other assessors.
