You may be required to comply with this standard if you intend to operate an airport lessee company, or if you are the occupier of an airport site. You are required to measure the level of air pollution and maintain the level under the acceptable limit. This standard is used as a method of air sampling to ascertain whether the amount of any solid particles in the air are under the acceptable limit. These pollutants are from any stationary activity that involves the burning of fuel.
This standard sets out an isokinetic manual gravimetric method for the determination of particulate matter emitted from stationary sources such as stacks, ducts or other similar outlets. The method provides a measure of both the concentration and mass flow rate of particulate matter passing through a stack or duct over the sampling period employed.
