Word-of-the-Day: acceptance sampling


acceptance sampling

Definition of Term

acceptance sampling: The procedures by which decisions to accept or reject a sampled lot or population are made based on the results of a sample inspection. In air pollution work, acceptance sampling could be used when checking a sample of filters for certain measurable characteristics such as pH, tensile strength, or collection efficiency to determine acceptance or rejection of a shipment of filters, or when checking the chemical content of a sample of vials of standard solutions from a lot of vials to be used in an interlaboratory test.
