Measurement SIG

 

The objective of the CASANZ Measurement Special Interest Group (MSIG) is to ensure that atmospheric contaminants in ambient air and industrial source emissions are measured utilising methods that are fit for purpose.

The objective will be achieved through:

 

·

The conduct of workshops at the Society biennial conference;

·

Preparation of source emission and ambient air quality test methods in cooperation with Standards Australia/Standards New Zealand

 

New draft AS/NZ standards open for public comment
