Abstract
Abstract

This guideline describes sensory testing and the evaluation of indoor odours using human panels. It describes assessment methods and planning, preparation and execution of the olfactory tests. The methods can be applied to sensory evaluation with regard to acceptability, intensity and hedonic odour tone. Sensory testing can be performed on site or in laboratories, in the latter case by means of air in sampling bags which was collected from the site. The olfactory tests are appropriate for office and administration buildings, for assembly halls, for residential buildings and other habitable rooms in which the comfort and health of the occupants is of major interest.
