    "The Components for Evaluation of Direct-Reading Monitors for Gases and Vapors (hereafter referred to as the Components document) [NIOSH 2012], presents methods to be used in evaluating direct-reading monitors* for use in workplace compliance determinations. This Addendum to the Components document expands the applicability of the Components by presenting methods to be used in evaluating direct-reading monitors for hazard detection in First Responder environments, including those related to incidents involving weapons of mass destruction (WMD). The Addendum contains a standardized test protocol and performance acceptance criteria for evaluating commercially available, direct-reading monitors in a style similar to the Components document. [*Consistent with the Components document, the term monitor is used here to indicate a device for on-site measurement of contaminant levels for gases and vapors in air. The term detector refers to the component of the monitor that actually detects the contaminant.]" - NIOSHTIC-2
