The INDEX project (Critical Appraisal of the Setting and Implementation of Indoor exposure Limits in the EU) started in December 2002 and had a duration of two years, until December 2004.The project was financially supported by DG SANCO and it was coordinated and carried out by the JRC in collaboration with a Steering Committee of leading European experts in the area of indoor air pollution. Scope of INDEX was to identify priorities and to assess the needs for a Community strategy and action plan in the area of indoor air pollution by:
- setting up a list of compounds to be regulated in indoor environments with priority on the basis of health impact criteria
- providing suggestions and recommendations on potential exposure limits for these compounds, and
- providing information on links with existing knowledge, ongoing studies, legislation etc. at world scale.
