Guidance Documents Field Sampling Procedures Manual


Field Sampling Procedures Manual

The Field Sampling Procedures Technical Guidance Committee is in the process of updating the Field Sampling Procedures Manual (FSPM), chapter by chapter. Completed chapters will be posted on this website as they are finalized. When all the updated chapters are posted, the 2022 edition will replace the 2005 edition as the most current technical guidance associated with procedures and equipment utilized for the collection of environmental samples. At that time, the 2005 version will be archived.

The FSPM is designed to help those parties responsible for conducting environmental sampling as part of requirements established by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP).

For further information on sampling information related to contaminants of emerging concern, please visit NJDEP SRP - Emerging Contaminants.

The 2005 edition of the FSPM is available (to the right). Updated chapters are listed below.
