This part of ISO 16000 specifies the planning of carbon dioxide indoor pollution measurements. In the case of indoor air measurements, the careful planning of sampling and the entire measurement strategy are of particular significance since the result of the measurement may have far-reaching consequences, for example, with regard to ascertaining the need for remedial action or the success of such an action. An inappropriate measurement strategy may lead to misrepresentation of the true conditions or, worse, to erroneous results. This part of ISO 16000 is intended to be a link between Part 1 of ISO 16000, "General Aspects of Sampling Strategy", and the analytical procedures. Before indoor air measurements are carried out, the purpose of the measurement shall be clearly defined. In the case of determination of carbon dioxide, the following objectives are chiefly of interest and are dealt with in detail: - Investigating compliance with a guide value - Investigating the ventilation situation in a room By means of the measured value the ventilation rate needed can be used as a criterion of good air quality indoors and for calculating the design of room conditioning systems for ventilating indoor areas. Examples for calculations are presented.
