Camfil UK has launched a certification scheme for buildings that promote clean indoor air quality through the selection and application of comfort air filtration.
The Excellence in Air Quality Certificates will be awarded to FM’s, Estates Managers and Building Managers over the coming months during the European Year of Air 2013.
The Certificate, awarded by Camfil UK, has ‘air system star quality points’ based on the correct use of comfort air filtration and also that recommendations given by BSI EN 13779:2007 for air filters classed by BSI EN 779:2012 have been consistently implemented in all the building areas.

Anthropogenic particulate matter in the air contributes to the death of nearly 29,000 people every year, and harms the environment. In its latest report, CIWEM says it is time to overcome the political barriers and commit to a healthier future.
Each year, around 29,000 deaths are attributable to anthropogenic particulate matter in the UK, at a cost to the economy of up to £15 billion a year. Other air pollutants cause illness, premature mortality and harm the natural environment; and the UK’s National Air Quality Strategy, which should provide a clear framework for improving air quality, is years out of date, according to the Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management (CIWEM).
In a new report, Clearing the Air, published today during the 2013 EU ‘Year of Air,’ CIWEM provides the latest information on the air pollution challenges facing the UK and gives an independent assessment on the level of policy importance for each pollutant. The report asserts that whilst some scientific challenges remain in understanding the impacts of air pollution, there is still considerable progress that can be made by addressing political barriers.
The report Clearing the Air gives a detailed background on the legislation, policies and practical actions that have been taken to date and look at the key issues affecting air pollution today: road transport, small combustion plant in urban areas, planning and climate change.
