The Technical Report describes the analytical procedures for determining EC and OC on quartz fibre filters. Sampling onto filters is to be done in accordance with EN 14907 for PM2,5. The scope includes non rural site measurements, to allow the assessment of additional exposure of people in urban areas as stated in the objectives of the council directive 2008/50/EG and to achieve coherence in the European approach. Measurements are made over a nominal sampling period of 24 h. The measurement procedures are applicable to: - rural background, - urban background, - road side and - industrial sites.
