IAQM webinar: Odour assessment - Reflections on the effectiveness of IAQM guidance

Thursday, 7 July 2022 - 12:30pm to 1:15pm

It has now been eight years since the production of the IAQM guidance on the assessment of odours for planning (pdf). The guidance has been widely used and accepted by planning authorities.

Michael Bull, the chair of the working group that produced the guidance, will discuss his experience of its use, talk about the basis of some of the advice given, and consider where experience suggests improvements could be made.
