Dear MBoesch,

Thank you for your interest in the European Environment Agency.

The values shown at https://www.eea.europa.eu/[…]/air-quality-standards-under-the-1 under the heading "Air quality standards under the Air Quality Directive, and WHO air quality guidelines" refer to outdoor air. You can find them in the EU Directive: Directive 2008/50/EC and the WHO AQ Guidelines.

Regarding possible updates of the values, the European Commission is currently undertaking a Fitness check of the AQ Directives, though a revision is not foreseen in the immediate future. On the other hand, WHO is in the process of reviewing its AQ guidelines.

Finally, regarding indoor air pollution, please check the WHO webpage at https://www.who.int/[…]/household-air-pollution-and-health.

I hope that this information may be useful for you.
Kind regards,
EEA Enquiry Service
