Proposed residential indoor air quality guidelines for formaldehyde /: H128-1/05-432E
In the 1980s, Health Canada and the Federal-Provincial Advisory Committee on Occupational and Environmental Health (CEOH) developed a series of indoor air quality guidelines that were published in 1987 in a report entitled Exposure Guidelines for Residential Indoor Air Quality (CEOH 1989). However, since then, a significant amount of research has been carried out and published on the health effects of some of these substances, warranting a reassessment of the scientific basis of the guidelines and potentially a revision of the guidelines themselves. The purpose of this document is to revisit the guidelines developed for formaldehyde in view of epidemiological and toxicological studies published since 1987.
