[en] This paper presents the methodologies to determine odour in ambient air by field inspection that
will be a new European standard. The objective is to characterize the odour in a defined area.
Without making a link with potential annoyance due to the presence of odours, the described
methods propose the way to characterize an exposed environment. Two approaches are defined in
the new standard: the grid method and the plume method. The grid method can be used determine
the exposure to ambient odours in a defined area of study, using direct observation of recognizable
odours in the field by human panel members. This method must be applied over a sufficiently long
period of time (6 or 12 months) to be representative for the meteorological conditions of that
location. The result is the distribution of the frequency of exposure to odours within the
assessment area. The plume method can be used to determine the extent of detectable and
recognizable odours from a specific source using direct observation in the field by human panel
members under specific meteorological conditions.
