Thank you for your comment! I have made note of it for the next revision of NFPA 350. We have just completed our second draft and it will be posted for review in the next few months. I would encourage you to sign up for email alerts at www.nfpa.org/350 above the tabs so that you are notified when the document is finalized and when it will be open for public input again. I would encourage you to submit your recommendation directly to the document when it is open for public input along with a substantiation for your change. The Committee must consider every public input at their meeting. Thank you!

IMO the most misunderstood and misinterpreted direct reading instrument is the PID. While a standard won't generally give direction for interpretation of PID readings, I think it would be important to include appendices that would give responders information about monitoring for unknowns and mixtures with a PID as well as the limitations due to various ionization potentials and lamp strengths.
