About

Scope

Standardization of tools for air quality characterisation of emissions, workspace air, ambient air, indoor air, in particular measurement methods for air pollutants (particles, gases, odours, micro-organisms) and for meteorological parameters, measurement planning, procedures for Quality Assurance/Quality Control (QA/QC) and methods for the evaluation of results including the determination of uncertainty.

Excluded :

  • the establishment of limit values for air pollutants;
  • the air quality in clean rooms;
  • radioactive substances.
