Why should I join IAPSC?

Sustained public awareness and concern over the effects of air pollution, the introduction of new sources of pollution and new pollutants, new responsibilities for pollution monitoring and control arising from legislation, all highlight a continuing need for up-to-date and reliable information on air pollution. This is particularly so in todays climate of public concern over environmental issues.

If you need information on air pollution, then you may wish to consider joining IAPSC. This will enable your organisation to be linked to a long established source of sound information and practical expertise on the subject and to a network of bodies involved in this field.
