ABSTRACT
The article discusses the use of statistical tests for limit value transgression. Statistical tests can be applied to unobjectionably and reproducibly justify a decision on whether a limit value has been violated or seen, and on the other hand to calculate the analytical effort needed to get significant results. Statistical hypothesis testing can be utilized to validate limit value transgressions. When encountering a limit value transgression, it is vital to indicate whether it is significant or not significant.
