This part of ISO 16000 defines test methods of the performance of VOC detectors that are designed to monitor indoor and living atmosphere VOC level as well as to control indoor air quality in portable, mobile, and remote applications. The provisions in this standard cover the VOCs detectors as well as the detectors for individual VOC. This standard sets out only the requirements applicable to a test method standard of VOC detectors such as response time, stability, and measuring range as well as recommendations for test gases. VOC detectors detect specifically VOCs as target compounds. Test methods for assessing the performance of VOC detectors are defined. VOC detectors are classified into two categories; one is for specific VOC detection and the other for VOC mixtures (VOCs). In the case of the specific VOC detector, the target VOC concentration is provided upon testing of a standard test gas containing the VOC as one component. To improve the reliability of the VOC detectors, the standard sets out test methods of VOC detectors which also evaluate response time, stability, poisoning and so on.
