VDI/DIN-Commission on Air Pollution Prevention (KRdL) - Standards Committee

In numerous European Standards elaborated by CEN/TC 264 "Air quality" measurement methods are described providing a basis for monitoring of limit values. Therefore, these standards directly support European legislation. The extensive laboratory and field tests necessary for validation of these measurement methods are financially supported by EU/EFTA in the form of mandates.

Please find hereafter the results of the field validation measurements carried out up to now for download as pdf or zip files:

  • EN 15852 "Ambient air quality - Standard method for the determination of total gaseous mercury" (4 Zip files, altogether approx. 7 MB), elaborated by CEN/TC 264/WG 25; the draft standard was published in August 2008.
  • EN 15446:2008 "Fugitive and diffuse emissions of common concern to industry sectors - Measurement of fugitive emission of vapours generating from equipment and piping leaks"
