Abstract: The INDEX project (Critical Appraisal of the Setting and Implementation of Indoor Exposure Limits in the EU), coordinated by the EU/JRC and funded by DG SANCO, has been finished in December 2004. The project was carried out in collaboration with a Steering Committee of leading European experts in the area of indoor air pollution. Scope of INDEX was to identify priorities and to assess the needs for a Community strategy and action plan in the area of indoor air pollution. The key issues that have been addressed within the project are: - the setting up of a list of compounds to be measured and regulated in indoor environments with priority, on the basis of health impact criteria - to provide suggestions and recommendations on potential exposure limits for these compounds and - to provide information on links with existing knowledge, ongoing studies, legislation etc. at world scale. Suggestions and recommendations on potential exposure limits or other exposure control actions were defined for five prioritised compounds; formaldehyde, nitrogen dioxide, carbon monoxide, benzene, and naphthalene.
