Abstract

There are few standards and guidelines on indoor air in Australia, and little information is available on indoor air quality in Australian buildings. The development of existing controls has relied heavily on overseas data and often lags behind the implementation of controls elsewhere. Indoor air standards have been developed for ventilation in public buildings commensurate with U.S. standards. A recommended goal for formaldehyde exposure levels has been set at 0.1 ppm and a remedial action level for radon at 200 Bq/m3. Nitro gen dioxide, particulates and volatile organic compounds are currently under review. Other indoor issues are not yet being considered at a formal level. This paper discusses the current status of the control and regulation of indoor air quality and provides an overview of indoor air research in Australia.
