WHO Air Quality Guideline
Guideline set by the World Health Organization for exposure to fine particle (PM2.5) and nitrogen dioxide (NO2), based on evidence of the health effects of long-term exposure to these pollutants. The guideline is set at an annual average concentration of 5 µg/m3 for PM2.5 and 10 µg/m3 for NO2 (based on data averaged over one year).
WHO Interim Targets
- Four interim air quality targets (IT) set by the World Health Organization for annual average fine particle (PM2.5) concentrations (based on data averaged over one year): IT-1 ≤ 35 µg/m3; IT-2 ≤ 25 µg/m3; IT-3 ≤ 15 µg/m3; and IT-4 ≤ 10 µg/m3.
- Three interim air quality targets set by the World Health Organization for annual average nitrogen dioxide (NO2) concentrations (based on data averaged over one year): IT-1 ≤ 40 µg/m3; IT-2 ≤ 30 µg/m3; and IT-3 ≤ 20 µg/m3.
