Abstract:

The Decontamination Workshop, How Clean is Clean Enough was conducted 12-14 September 2007 at Aberdeen Marriott, Aberdeen MD. The purpose was to determine an acceptable level of decontamination for victims before they can be released from a chemical incident site. Answers to this difficult question will influence ongoing and future decontamination equipment performance standards. The workshop brought together individuals from federal, state, and local agencies so that all pertinent concerns and views could be expressed in an open, neutral, and non-attribution forum. The workshop was hosted by the U.S. Army Edgewood Chemical Biological Center, Engineering Directorate, and Department of Homeland Security DHSNational Institutes of Standards and Technology NIST Standards Development Team, and was funded by DHS.
