PDFs of Notices and Handouts

We recommend you laminate the Legal Protocols, Disclaimer, Testing Procedure and Clean-up Procedure sheets for use in the field to protect them from handling and spills.

For use at a testing station it can be handy to print the Disclaimer and the Legal Protocols on a single sheet, or laminate them together back-to-back, so that the tester can flip it over as needed. We'd recommend keeping the Testing Procedure sheet separate and always visible at a testing station.
