Chemistry Consulting Services
ECCS brings over 300 years of chemistry expertise and does so from more than an analytical perspective. While most of the consulting work we offer is included with the value-added testing services we deliver, ECCS has been retained to provide formal chemistry consulting services on multiple projects nationwide. ECCS consulting services are centered around the following:
Third Party Data Validation
ECCS is uniquely qualified to provide data validation services that conform with the U.S. EPA Functional Guidelines. Our experienced chemists have provided independent third-party data validation for hundreds of projects under CERCLA, RCRA, state, and other federal regulatory programs.
ECCS personnel have performed many audits of laboratories nationwide on behalf of potentially responsible party (PRP) committees, engineering firms, and laboratories (for in-house QA/QC purposes). Our laboratory audits are extremely rigorous and may significantly exceed regulatory-based and International Standards Organization (ISO) Guide 25 audit strategies.
Expert Testimony/Litigation Support
ECCS is an established and highly respected firm that can provide technical assistance during litigation and testimony proceedings. In this capacity, ECCS personnel have provided chemistry and QA litigation support services to private industry, insurance companies, and legal firms.
Analytical Methods Evaluation and Development
ECCS provides analytical method evaluation or development expertise to provide solutions for non-routine chemical analysis, especially as it relates to the pesticide residue testing. These services may include modifying the design of a US EPA method to achieve a certain goal, or developing a new analytical method for a specific chemical or analysis matrix.
