Approval of the new Chilean Standard NCh3190 transposition of the European EN 13725

Web ISSSThe National Institute of Normalization (INN) in Chile has recently endorsed the new Chilean Standard NCh3190, Air quality. Determination of odour concentration by dynamic olfactometry, which is basically a transposition of the European EN 13725. The draft of this standard can still be consulted on the website of the Superintendence of Sanitary Services (SISS) of Chile.

The INN is the organism in charge of the study and preparation of technical norms at a Chilean level and is a member of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the pan-American Commission of Technical Norms (COPANT). The INN represents Chile in these organisms.

This project of standard was studied by the Technical Committee for Systems of  Environmental Management, with the aim of defining a method to objectively determine the odour concentration of a gas sample by dynamic olfactometry and human panellists and the rate of odour emission from chimneys, passive area sources and active area sources.

As there is not an International Standard, this project is based on the European Standard EN 13725, being identical to it. The project of Standard NCh3190 has been prepared by the Division of standards of the INN.
