Ambient Air Monitoring


Ambient Air Quality refers to the condition of the Air in the surrounding Environment. 

European Union directives set down air quality standards in Ireland and the other member states for a variety of pollutants. 

The ambient Air Quality and Cleaner Air for Europe (CAFE) Directive (2008/50/EC) was published in 2008, replacing the previously published Framework Directive and the first, second and third daughter Directives.
