The preliminary version of the opinion can be found here
The SCHER has adopted a preliminary report on the risk assessment of
indoor air quality to provide the Commission with a sound scientific basis for
developing and implementing policies on indoor air. The report covers indoor
environments where the general public may be exposed to pollutants, such as
private homes and public buildings. The preliminary report identified a
number of factors in the indoor environment that can affect well-being and
health, which include chemicals emitted from different sources, particles,
microbes, humidity, pets and pests. The report also identifies gaps in
knowledge, especially regarding human exposure, health effects and the impact
of indoor air quality on vulnerable groups.
