CHAS folks,


To get the best set of answers, I am forwarding below a request for information I recently received from a colleague. 


“Do you know if there are generally accepted air quality standards for chemistry buildings, and if there are where would I find them?
Also, do you know where I could find information about generally accepted practices with regards to testing air quality, especially in academic buildings such as ours?

I'm asking these questions in part due to a lack of knowledge, and in part based on some concerns about air quality in our chemistry building following some work on our air handling related to energy conservation.”


Thanks for your help and advice.
