Mandating Indoor Air Quality for Public Buildings

Given that the majority of us in NZ spend more than 90% of our time indoors, it’s astonishing there’s still no compulsory indoor air quality standards for our public spaces. We’re not alone – despite decades of research, most countries still don’t have legislated indoor air quality (IAQ) performance standards for public spaces to address concentration levels of indoor air pollutants. A group of 40 international scientists are collectively bringing the issue to the fore with the publication of their ‘Mandating Indoor Air Quality for Public Buildings’ paper, published in Science Journal. They propose IAQ standards be mandatory for public spaces and criticise the lack of many building codes that address operation, maintenance, and retrofitting, stating that most don’t focus on airbourne disease transmission.
