Abstract:

This TOP describes the test procedures used to characterize and determine the technical performance of a decontaminant. Decontamination is the process of reducing or eliminating the hazards associated with chemical, biological, or radiological contamination in order to accomplish assigned missions. This TOP addresses test methods for chemical contaminants only. Means of decontaminating personnel, equipment, or areas include neutralization, weathering, and physical removal of the chemical contaminant. Chemical contaminants may include chemical warfare agents CWAs and advanced threat agents. Many of the test methods in this TOP are conducted with only the decontaminant being tested. Some test methods for efficacy require the use of CWAs and decontaminants.
