Good practice guide for air quality monitoring and data management 2009

Publication date:  April 2009
Publication reference number:  ME 933

This document provides best practice guidance on ambient (outdoor) air quality monitoring and data management in New Zealand. It replaces the good practice guide published in 2000. Since then, there have been a number of developments in air quality monitoring, including the introduction of the national Environmental Standards for Air Quality in September 2004.

The 2009 guide describes a number of mandatory monitoring requirements as well as general good practice guidance for air quality monitoring. 

The Ministry intends to review and update the guide as further developments occur. If you have any comments or feedback, please send them to environmental.reporting@mfe.govt.nz

All feedback will be compiled and discussed further by the National Air Quality Working Group, which meets every six months.
