The report is a survey of the state-of-the-art of the scientific studies on indoor air quality criteria and standards. The principal subject is the indoor nonworkplace environment. Indoor air quality standards are classified into three types: (1) maximum allowable air quality standards; (2) design-level standards; and (3) emission standards. Each type may be a guideline, a rule or regulation or a standard with force of law. Both American and foreign efforts to issue standards in each of the types are discussed. The existing indoor air pollution standards and the health criteria documents on which they are based are enumerated. The major conclusion reached is that there has been no scientific effort to establish air pollution standards specifically for the indoor nonworkplace environment.
