This Technical Specification (TS) describes the general principles, including testing procedures and requirements, for the evaluation of performances of low-cost sensor systems for the monitoring of gaseous compounds in ambient air at fixed sites. The evaluation of sensor systems includes tests that shall be performed under prescribed laboratory and/or field conditions.
This TS is not intended for the test of sensors systems used for mobile devices, for the testing of networks of sensor nodes, or for indoor air monitoring although their potential importance is recognized and they could be the subjects of future TS documents.
Low-cost sensors are based on several principles of operations, e. g. amperometric sensors, metal oxides, optical sensors (Infra-Red absorption) etc. However, sensors share some common features, regarding their portability and low-cost compared to traditional reference methods. Typically, sensors are able to continuously monitor air pollution, with low response time ranging between a few tens of seconds and a few minutes.
The described procedure is applicable to the determination of the mass concentration of air pollutants. The pollutants that are considered in this TS consists of:
-the gaseous pollutants regulated under Directives 2008/50/EC: O3, NO2 and NO, CO, SO2 and benzene, in the range of concentrations expected in outdoor ambient air;
-CO2 as proxy for activities involving combustion processes or for CO2 evaporation from soil or water.
When applying the current Technical Specifications, the evaluation of sensors considers the thresholds, limits and averaging times that are defined into the Air Quality Directive (2008/50/EC)[1]. Generally, the Directive sets Limit Values consists of an annual average that is computed by averaging hourly values. For sensors, it can be useful to select shorter averaging time.
In order to rely on the results of tests this protocol, future users shall make sure that sensors will be implemented with the same configuration as the sensor submitted to this protocol. This can include: the same power supply, data acquisition, data processing, identical sampling/ protective box and periodicity of calibration. The sensor shall be submitted to the same regime of QA/QC and maintenance operation as during tests. In addition, it is strongly recommended that sensors measurements are periodically compared side-by-side with the reference method.
For the purpose of this technical specification sensor systems are significantly less expensive than reference methods for the same pollutant.

This document describes a method for assessing the performance of photocatalytic inorganic materials contained in cement mortars and/or limes or ceramic-based matrices, paints or materials deposited as thin films or coatings on a variety of substrates for the photocatalytic abatement of nitric oxide in the gas phase. This method is not suitable for the assessment of samples to be applied with flow perpendicular to the surface or flow permeating the surface itself as polymeric and paper filters, honeycomb structures and suchlike.
The performance for the photocatalytic sample under test is evaluated by measuring the degradation rate of nitric oxide (NO) using the method described herein. The photocatalytic abatement rate is calculated from the observed rate by eliminating the effects of mass transfer. The intrinsic photocatalytic abatement rate is an intrinsic property of the material tested and makes it possible to distinguish the photocatalytic activities of various products with an absolute scale defined with physical and engineering meaning.
For the measurements and calculations described in this document the concentration of nitrogen oxides (NOx) is defined as the stoichiometric sum of nitric oxide (NO) and nitrogen dioxide (NO2).

This document specifies the whole vehicle test chamber, the vapour sampling assembly and the operating conditions for the determination of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and carbonyl compounds in vehicle cabin air. There are three measurements performed: one (for VOCs and carbonyl compounds) during the simulation of ambient conditions (ambient mode) at standard conditions of 23 °C - 25 °C with no air exchange; a second only for the measurement of formaldehyde at elevated temperatures (parking mode); and a third for VOCs and carbonyl compounds simulating driving after the vehicle has been parked in the sun starting at elevated temperatures (driving mode). For the simulation of the mean sun irradiation, a fixed irradiation in the whole vehicle test chamber is employed. The VOC method is valid for measurement of non-polar and slightly polar VOCs in a concentration range of sub-micrograms per cubic metre up to several milligrams per cubic metre. Using the principles specified in this method, some semi-volatile organic compounds (SVOC) can also be analysed. Compatible compounds are those which can be trapped and released from the Tenax TA®[1] sorbent tubes described in ISO 16000‑6, which includes VOCs ranging in volatility from n-C6 to n-C16. The sampling and analysis procedure for formaldehyde and other carbonyl compounds is performed by collecting air on to cartridges coated with 2,4-dinitrophenylhydrazine (DNPH) and subsequent analysis by high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) with detection by ultraviolet absorption. Formaldehyde and other carbonyl compounds can be determined in the approximate concentration range 1 µg/m3 to 1 mg/m3. The method is valid for passenger cars, as defined in ECE-TRANS-WP.29/1045. This document gives guidelines for: a) transport and storage of the test vehicles until the start of the test; b) conditioning for the surroundings of the test vehicle and the test vehicle itself as well as the whole vehicle test chamber; c) conditioning of the test vehicle prior to measurements; d) simulation of ambient air conditions (ambient mode); e) formaldehyde sampling at elevated temperatures (parking mode); f) simulation of driving after the test vehicle has been parked in the sun (driving mode).  [1] Tenax TA® is the trade name of a product supplied by Buchem. This information is given for the convenience of users of this document and does not constitute an endorsement by ISO of the product named. Equivalent products may be used if they can be shown to lead to the same results.

This document specifies a method for determination of volatile organic compounds (VOC) in indoor air and in air sampled for the determination of the emission from products or materials used in indoor environments (according to ISO 16000‑1) using test chambers and test cells. The method uses sorbent sampling tubes with subsequent thermal desorption (TD) and gas chromatographic (GC) analysis employing a capillary column and a mass spectrometric (MS) detector with or without an additional flame ionisation detector (FID)[13]. The method is applicable to the measurement of most GC-compatible vapour-phase organic compounds at concentrations ranging from micrograms per cubic metre to several milligrams per cubic metre. Many very volatile organic compounds (VVOC) and semi-volatile organic compounds (SVOC) can be analysed depending on the sorbents used.

This document specifies the use of FTIR spectrometry for determining the concentrations of individual volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in waste gases from non-combustion processes. The method can be employed to continuously analyse sample gas which is extracted from ducts and other sources. A bag sampling method can also be applied, if the compounds do not adsorb on the bag material, and is appropriate in cases where it is difficult or impossible to obtain a direct extractive sample.
The principle, sampling procedure, IR spectral measurement and analysis, calibration, handling interference, QA/QC procedures and some essential performance criteria for measurement of individual VOCs are described in this document.
NOTE 1 The practical minimum detectable concentration of this method depends on the FTIR instrument (i.e. gas cell path length, resolution, instrumental noise and analytical algorithm) used, compounds, and interference specific (e.g. water and CO2).

This document describes a method for the sampling and measurement of mercury of both vapour and solid phases on stationary source flue gas streams. Mercury generally exists as elemental (Hg0) and oxidized (Hg2+) forms, both in the vapour and solid phases in flue gases. The vapour-phase (gaseous) mercury is captured either isokinetically or non-isokinetically with a gold amalgamation trap after removing solid-phase (particulate) mercury with a filter. Because gold amalgamation trap captures only gaseous elemental mercury, the oxidized mercury (Hg2+) in the vapour phase is converted to elemental mercury (Hg0) prior to the gold amalgamation trap. The concentration of gaseous mercury is determined using atomic absorption spectrometry (AAS) or atomic fluorescence spectrometry (AFS) after releasing mercury by heating the gold amalgamation trap. Separately, particulate mercury is collected isokinetically on a filter and the concentration is determined using cold vapour AAS or cold vapour AFS after dissolving the particulate mercury into solution.
The total concentration of mercury in flue gas is expressed as the sum of both gaseous and particulate mercury concentrations.
The gold amalgamation method is intended for short-term (periodic) measurements of gaseous mercury ranging from 0,01 μg/m3 to 100 μg/m3 with sampling volumes from 0,005 m3 to 0,1 m3 and sample gas flow rate between 0,2 l/min to 1 l/min. The measurement range of particulate mercury is typically from 0,01 μg/m3 to 100 μg/m3 with sampling volume from 0,05 m3 to 1 m3.

This document gives direction on the interpretation and application of the results of the measurement
of particle deposition rate on one or more vulnerable surfaces in a cleanroom as part of a contamination
control programme. It provides some instructions on how to influence the particle deposition rate and
reduce the risk of particle contamination on vulnerable surfaces.
This document gives information on how a cleanroom user can use the particle deposition rate
measurements to determine limits that can be set for macroparticles on vulnerable surfaces. It also
gives a risk assessment method by which an acceptable risk of deposition of particles onto vulnerable
surfaces in a cleanroom can be established and, when this is not achieved, methods that can be used to
reduce the particle deposition rate.
An alternative to the particle deposition rate is the particle obscuration rate which determines the rate
of increase of coverage of particles onto an area of surface over time. The particle obscuration rate can
be used in an analogous way to the particle deposition rate and the required particle obscuration rate
for a specified surface can be calculated and the risk from deposited particles reduced.
This document does not:
— provide a method to classify a cleanroom with respect to particle deposition rate or particle
obscuration rate;
— directly consider the deposition of microbe-carrying particles, although they can be treated as
particles;
— give any consideration to surface deposition by contact as, for example, when personnel touch a
product and contamination is transferred.

The European Air Quality Directive (Directive on ambient air quality and cleaner air for Europe) identifies different uses for modelling: Assessment, planning, forecast and source apportionment (SA). This CEN/TS addresses source apportionment modelling and specifies performance tests to check whether given criteria for receptor oriented source apportionment (RM) are met. The scope of the tests set out in this CEN/TS is performance assessment of SA of particulate matter using RM in the context of the European Directives 2004/107/EC and 2008/50/EC (AQD) including the Commission Implementing Decision 2011/850/EU of 12 December 2011. The application of RM does not quantify the spatial origin of particulate matter hence this CEN/TS does not test spatial SA.
This CEN/TS addresses RM users: participants and organisers of source apportionment intercomparison studies as well as practitioners of individual source apportionment studies. This CEN/TS is suitable for the evaluation of results of a specific SA modelling system with respect to intercomparison reference values (a-priori known or calculated on the basis of participants' values, see 3.12) in the following application areas:
- Assessment of performance and uncertainties of a modelling system or modelling system set up using the indicators laid down in this CEN/TS.
- Testing and comparing different source apportionment outputs in a specific situation (applying an evaluation dataset) using the indicators laid down in this CEN/TS.
- QA/QC tests every time practitioners run a modelling system.
It should be noted for clarity that the procedures and calculations presented in this CEN/TS cannot be used to check the performance of a specific SA modelling result without having any a-priori reference information about the contributions of sources/source categories.
The principles of receptor oriented models are summarised in Annex A. An overview of uncertainty sources and recommendations about steps to follow in SA studies are provided in Annex B and Annex C.
There are different methodologies than RM widely used to accomplish SA, e.g. source oriented models. These other methodologies cover aspects of SA which are required in the AQD and are not addressed by RM. Performance assessment of such methodologies is out of the scope of this CEN/TS.

This document provides a transparent framework for reporting on the choices related to the procedure
to determine primary energy factors (PEFs) and CO2 emission coefficients for energy delivered to and
exported from the buildings as described in EN ISO 52000-1.
This document specifies the choices to be made to calculate the PEF(s) and CO2 emission coefficients
related to different energy carriers. PEFs and CO2 emission coefficients for exported energy can be
different from those chosen for delivered energy.
This document is primarily intended for supporting and complementing EN ISO 52000-1, as the latter
requires values for the PEFs and CO2 emission coefficients to complete the EPB calculation. But it can also
be used for other applications.
NOTE The CO2 emission coefficients allow calculating greenhouse gas emissions. According to the choices
made, the CO2 emission coefficients represent only CO2 emissions or also other greenhouse gases.
Table 1 shows the position (marked by “X”) of this document within the modular structure as set out in
EN ISO 52000-1.
The modules represent EPB standards, although one EPB standard may cover more than one module and
one module may be covered by more than one EPB standard, for instance a simplified and a detailed
method respectively.
