For each indicator category (e.g., container management, proper hazardous waste management, emergency response, pollution prevention (P2), draft language was selected or developed and then tested against the six factors that influence data quality: precision, sensitivity, representativeness, completeness, bias, and validation. Each state also identified whether the state planned to use existing or new data for the indicator. Below is the container management section of the worksheet that project states used to develop common indicator language.
At the end of the workshop, participating states agreed on draft SQG indicator language.

Shortly after the workshop, a SQG Final Draft Indicator Acceptance Worksheet was sent to all project states to:
Review final indicator language,
Identify the data source for those indicators,
