The role of the Central Laboratory of Air Pollution is also presented and illustrated with typical examples of harmonisation tasks recently undertaken. Finally, future perspectives are given in relation to the coming Frame Directive on monitoring, assessment and management of ambient air quality and the creation of the European Environment Agency.
