Vehicle interior air quality assessment guideline goes into effect

BEIJING – The Guideline for Passenger Vehicle Interior Air Quality Assessment (Guideline), drafted by the Ministry of Environmental Protection (MEP), General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine (AQSIQ) and several automakers and research institutions, went into effect on March 1.

The Guideline provides recommended maximum concentration levels of eight common gaseous particles found in vehicle interiors including benzene, styrene and formaldehyde that maybe harmful to occupants.

Industry experts point out that the Guideline fills a void in vehicle interior air quality standards in China and consumers can use it as a basis to safeguard their legal rights to repair or replace vehicles that do not meet requirements.
