Ambient Air Monitoring and QA/QC Guidelines

December 4, 2019

CCME has posted the Ambient Air Monitoring and Quality Assurance/Quality Control Guidelines: National Air Pollution Surveillance Program.

This document contains guidance related to air quality monitoring procedures at National Air Pollution Surveillance (NAPS) sites across the country and replaces the Ambient Air Monitoring Protocol for PM2.5 and Ozone: Canada-wide Standards for Particulate Matter and Ozone (CCME 2011) and the manual titled National Air Pollution Surveillance Network Quality Assurance and Quality Control Guidelines (EC 2004). It provides recommendations and establishes minimum requirements to ensure that data collected by the NAPS Program are of known quality, defensible, and comparable across Canada.

The NAPS Program is managed by provincial and territorial governments across Canada in cooperation with Environment and Climate Change Canada.
