ASTM WK62732

    New Test Method for Performance Evaluation of Consumer-Grade Indoor Air Quality Sensors and Sensing Devices

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: D22.05 | Committee D22 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Scope

    Establish standardized methods of test for the performance of indoor air quality sensors with respect to correlation to federal equivalent method (FEM) instruments, accuracy, precision, hysteresis, interference, climatological stability, and drift.


    low-cost, sensors, IAQ


    Based on falling costs, consumer grade IAQ sensors and sensing devices are gaining wide adoption for reporting on IAQ conditions and also controlling ventilation systems. Better information is needed with respect to the performance of these sensors so that users can make informed decisions regarding their selection and specification. The primary anticipated users are expected to be IAQ sensor and sensing device manufacturers, smart ventilation system manufacturers, and laboratories. The standard is likely to be referenced in standards and codes that address IAQ in buildings, such as ASHRAE 62.2, ASHRAE 62.1, the International Residential Code, the International Mechanical Code, and California Title 24.

    The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
