The measurement of gaseous pollutants in air is a sensitive and priority issue that has a large impact on human health and environment. The European Directive on “Ambient air quality and cleaner air for Europe” (2008/50/EC) sets limit values and data quality objectives for the measurement in EU member states of air pollutants in ambient air. Although no harmonized legislation is currently present for the monitoring of indoor air, the concern on the exposure to indoor chemical pollutants is clearly increasing. The Joint Research Project MACPoll (Metrology for Chemical Pollutants in Air), running under the European Metrology Research Program, addresses the need to improve the metrological traceability and comparability of measurements using current air monitoring techniques and the need to set up a metrological bases for the new sensor technologies used in air quality applications.
