April 2012: SUMMARY REPORT on EU Ventilation Standards Released
This report summarises the results of Work Package 5 of the HealthVent project. It provides the necessary background information for the work towards health based ventilation guidelines for Europe.
The objective of this work package was to give an insight into the overall state of ventilation in Europe, comprising distribution of ventilation systems, building regulations, ventilation standards and compliance to regulations.
The prescriptive ventilation guidelines based on the real world indoor air quality and ventilation problems were also elaborated. They are considered being an important contribution on the way towards the general health based ventilation guidelines. They are not the part of the present report and will be included in the final report of HealthVent project.
This project is supported by the European Commission under the Health Programme
