Proposed Approach for the Implementation of Odour-Based Standards and Guidelines  (source: Environmental Registry)

The Ontario Ministry of the Environment (MOE) has identified the need to develop and/or update air quality standards for priority contaminants. The Ministry's Standards Plan (PA9E0004) (released in October, 1996 and revised November, 1999), identified candidate substances for the development of air standards. Priorities were identified based on a number of considerations including toxicity, the potential for exposure and the quantity of air emissions in Ontario.
