This standard describes
the quality assurance procedures needed to assure that an Automated
Measuring System (AMS) or Continuous Emission Monitoring System (CEM)
installed to measure emissions to air are capable of meeting the uncertainty
requirements on measured values given by legislation, e.g. EU Directives,
national legislation, and/or the Environment Agency.
Three different Quality
Assurance Levels (QAL1, QAL2, and QAL3) are defined to achieve this objective.
These Quality Assurance Levels cover the suitability of an AMS for its measuring
task (e.g. before or during the purchase period of the AMS), the validation of
the AMS following its installation, and the control of the AMS during its
ongoing operation on an industrial plant. An Annual Surveillance Test (AST) is
The suitability evaluation
of the AMS and its measuring procedure are described in EN ISO 14956 (QAL1).
