A new meeting of WG41 in Milan

on .

e nose board   The 19th and 20th of March, the Working Group (WG) 41 of the European Standard Organization met in Milan to discuss several issues related to  Instrumental Odour Monitoring Systems (IOMS) or so called e-noses. This new standard was on the brisk of being downgraded to a technical specification, because the text developed by the experts was lacking a development on the first stage of Quality Assurance Level (QAL1), among other things.

   The European regulation allowed in the mandatory area only EN 15267 certified automated measuring systems (AMS) for the continuous measurements of air pollution. However, the QAL1-certification for AMS instruments cannot be applied, as is, for IOMS. The QAL1 certification clearly needs an adaptation to the complexities of measuring odours according to the 2 reference methods considered in this standard, the EN 13725 and the EN 16841.

Workshop Setting standards for low-cost Air Quality sensors, 11 April 2019, Berlin

on .

workshop bam standard ioms   The 11th of April there will be a free workshop dealing with standardization on low-cost sensors in Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und -prüfung (BAM) in Berlin. Within this Workshop, there will be a presentationd dedicated to standards on Instrumental Odour Monitoring Systems. This part will be headed by Mr. Thorsten Conrad who is a member of the Working Group 41 of the European Standardization Committee (CEN).

   Mr Conrad will discuss in his presentation the state of the draft of the standard on IOMS developed by the CEN and will be open to questions on the matter. If you happen to be around Berlin on this day, and odour management is your stuff, it would be a good idea to attend this free workshop and to hear what this expert has to say.

Call for E-Nose Standardization Volunteers

on .

ieee new standard e nose   The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) has launched an open call for experts to participate in a new standard for e-noses. The organization is asking for volunteers to contribute to this new standard that will have a strong focus on specific applications of these devices. The IEEE Sensors Council and the IEEE Industrial Electronics Society will sponsor the initial phases of this expanded standardization effort.

   As many of you probably know, there is already an initiative of standardization of Instrumental Odour Monitoring Systems (IOMS) aka e-noses within the European Standardization Committee (CEN). However, this initiative has a strong focus in the use of these devices only for environmental air monitoring. The IEEE wants to expand the applications of IOMS (or e-noses) to other uses including, of course, the environmental one.
