A Study on the Improvement of Self-measurement Agency System Related with Time Required for Analysis by Measurement Items
측정 항목별 분석 소요시간과 연계한 자가 측정 대행 제도 개선 연구

The problem with the current self-measurement agency system is that as in 2007, the self-measurement agency fee was abolished and was improved to be operated according to the market economy principle, it is in the state that in the case of the price competition for the measurement agency, the measurement fees are priced at the lower prices, to set the unit price by applying the lowermost bidding system. With the lower measurement fee, in order to make the measurement fee collected, the cases non-complying with the regulations, such as the arbitrary result report and so on, are currently occurring, and it is difficult to guarantee the reliability for the measurement results because it is a limiting factor in recruiting the technical manpower with the certificates. In this study, the environmental pollutants were divided into the areas of atmosphere (28 items), water quality (80 items), and indoor air quality (10 items), and then, the time required for the sampling, preprocessing, analysis, writing reports, etc. was estimated. The sampling time was Min. 12.3 minutes – Max. 170 minutes in atmosphere, Min. 26.9 minutes – Max. 45 minutes in water quality, and Min. 52.9 minutes – Max. 96.720 minutes in indoor air quality. As a result of calculating the daily workload per 1 group (2 people) for the technical manpower in the atmospheric field based on these findings, it appeared that the Min. 3 units – Max. 5 units of measurement vent (or companies) could be collected. It is expected that when the limitations of the workload quantity derived like above might be used as a factor in the rating method by each measuring agent, it could be a starting point to fix the chronic problem of the current measurement agency system.
