WG41 meeting in Barcelona

on .

WG41meeting barcelona   WG41 is having an intensive year 2019 as more meetings than usual are happening this year. Last one took place in Barcelona, Spain only two months after the WG41 meeting in Bilbao, Spain. 12 experts from Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands, Italy and Spain sat to discuss issues related to the use of Instrumental Odour Monitoring Systems (IOMS).

   Some very important issues were discussed during the meeting. One of them related to the Quality Assurance Levels (QAL) of the IOMS, to be precise with the QAL1. It seems that there will not be a specific group dealing with a procedure to demonstrate that the IOMS is suitable for the intended purpose before installation.

wg41 meeting bilbao 2019 2The 13th meeting of the Working Group (WG) 41 of the Technical Committee (TC) 264 on air quality of the European Standard Committee (CEN) dealing with Instrumental Odour Monitoring Systems (IOMS) coded as CEN/TC 264/WG 41, took place in Bilbao, Spain the 3rd and 4th of July. A total of 16 experts met to discuss the new standard on IOMSs, previously known as e-noses.

A new Task Group 5 (TG5) was created in the previous meeting in Milan in order to deal with the implications of the standards on Automatic Measuring Systems (AMS) EN 141881 and EN 15267, on IOMSs. Among the many issues addressed in this meeting in Bilbao, a new proposal to bring a Quality Assurance Level (QAL) 1 was discussed.

Working group 41 on IOMS has got an extension to continue its work.

wg41   The Technical Committee 264 (TC264) on Air Quality has decided to grant an extension to the work developed by the experts on Working Group 41 (WG41) focused on Instrumental Odour Monitoring Systems (IOMS) by activating a work item. That means that the group will have 3 more years to develop this standard.

   The first meeting of this group took place three and a half years ago in Antwerp, Belgium. Much work has been done during this time by the around 15 experts that usually meet in these 2-days sessions that are hold usually three times a year. In addition, there are also Task Group meetings planned around the year and videomeetings hold from time to time. So there is a lot of work and a lot of hours here to develop a standard.
