The environmental analysis competence of local governments is crucial for implementing environmental protection policy. Since fiscal year 1990, the EPA has allocated funds to local authorities to set up their own laboratories under assistance from the EAL. Since fiscal year 1993, the EAL has allocated funds to local environmental protection authorities for providing regional environmental analysis services to the public. The EAL also holds national environmental analysis seminars at least three times a year, as well as an annual environmental analysis personnel review seminar. These seminars provide opportunities for technology exchange among personnel from central and local government. The purpose is to assist regional personnel in upgrading their analysis competence. The EAL visits laboratories run by county bureaus of environmental protection annually and assists local laboratories in solving testing management and technique problems.

After Taiwan Province a political entity that paralleled other governmental structures was dismantled in July 1999, the original assistance and support provided by the provincial government ended. To ensure continuity in environmental analysis and quality testing work within the respective levels of government, the EAL encouraged the Environmental Protection Bureaus of Taipei County and six other counties that have more manpower and heavier testing workloads to apply for CNLA accreditation. Accreditation and periodical assessments are now provided by CNLA to ensure fairness, objectivity and expertise. At the same time, these factors can assist the EAL as it continues to oversee, evaluate, and ensure the implementation of the QA system and continuously improves testing validity.
