|Abstract:||There is a need to inform and educate building designers, managers and occupiers about possible harmful effects of emissions into the indoor environment and to develop indoor air quality management plans to minimise risks. This is an important part of the building environmental assessment provided by some green building certification schemes, such as LEED and Hong Kong BEAM. The development of European and international standardisation for the testing and labelling of products is a key aspect of the regulation and control of emissions of harmful chemicals and is the basis of the present initiative the main elements of which are summarised in this editorial paper.|
