Organization: ISO
Publication Date: 1 August 2007
Status: active
Page Count: 36
ICS Code (Ambient atmospheres): 13.040.20
scope:

This part of ISO 16000 specifies procedures to be used in planning of air measurements to determine the concentrations of asbestos in indoor atmospheres. Careful planning of the measurement strategy is important, because the results can become the basis of recommendations for major building renovations, or for the return of a building to normal occupancy status after removal of asbestos-containing materials.

This part of ISO 16000 uses the following definition for indoor environments as specified in ISO 16000-1:

- dwellings having living rooms, bedrooms, do-it-yourself (DIY) rooms, recreation rooms, cellars, kitchens and bathrooms;

- workrooms or workplaces in buildings which are not subject to health and safety inspections in regard to air pollutants (for example, offices and sales premises);

- public and commercial buildings (for example, hospitals, schools, kindergartens, sports halls, libraries, restaurants and bars, theatres and other function rooms);

- cabins of vehicles and public transport.
