ELAP - Application and Field of Testing (FOT) Forms

Application Forms

The ELAP 001 application form requests general information about the laboratory and personnel. It must be fully filled out, signed, and dated to be acceptable.

NEW APPLICATION! Due to Web Accessibility laws, the application has been reformatted to meet these requirements. Please use the version of the application below.

DO NOT use the old application below. It is for reference only.

checkmark PLEASE NOTE: The ELAP application form appears with strikeouts and red editing marks. Please use the version with these marks. ELAP 001 is defined in regulation and content cannot be deleted until regulatory change is made. See our Regulations page for updates.

Field of Testing Forms


ELAP only accredits for analytical test methods approved for regulatory purpose. State Regulatory Agencies such as the Department of Toxic Substances Control and the State and Regional Water Quality Control Boards utilize ELAP accredited laboratory data for environmental and public health decisions and have final decision approval of ELAP’s accreditation offering listed in the Field of Testing (FOT) worksheets.

If an analytical test method is not on the FOT sheet, ELAP does not offer the method for accreditation.

Contact your customer and discuss selection of methods which are appropriate for the tests it undertakes and request approval for intended use with the appropriate State Regulatory Agency.

The State Regulatory Agency will make a formal request to ELAP to update our accreditation offerings.

Please do not edit or manipulate the Excel worksheets. Keeping them in their current form allows ELAP to upload the requested subgroups directly to our accreditation database when we process an application. Simply enter a "Y" in the appropriate field next to the subgroups being requested.

Field of Testing forms are Excel file worksheets that identify which subgroups a laboratory is requesting accreditation.

These forms need to be submitted in two formats with every application:

  1. PDF. When printed, a signature and date field appear at the bottom of each form. Each page needs to be signed and dated, then scanned and submitted as a PDF.
  2. Excel file(s). Attach the saved Excel file (s) for each of your FOT forms to your application submission email.
