The Post-Decontamination Vapor Sampling and Analytical Test Methods Test Operations Procedure TOP contains the procedures for the measurement of contaminant vapor present after an item is decontaminated that could pose an exposure hazard to unprotected personnel. The chemical contaminants may include chemical warfare agents CWAs or their simulants, nontraditional agents NTAs, toxic industrial chemicals TICs, and toxic industrial materials TIMs. A vapor collection system is used to capture coupon off-gassing. Concentration is measured using chromatographic analytical methods. This laboratory-scale test method uses a range of test articles from coupons, panels, and small fielded equipment items.
