The article offers information on the lessons and best practices experienced with ASTM International's vapor intrusion standard and discusses the emerging problem areas of the standard in the U.S. It notes that vapor intrusion can harm the health of the people and could lead to a liability for stakeholder in terms of property transaction. However, some businesses did not include ASTM vapor intrusion as part of their environmental diligence.
