The Environmental Protection Agency is responsible for implementing legislation on ambient/outdoor air quality. There is no legislation on indoor air quality in homes therefore there is no organisation with responsibilities for this.
- If you are experiencing health problems please contact your Doctor your Health Service Executive (HSE).
- If you think the source of the air pollution is outside you can contact the air pollution section of your Local Authority. They deal with air pollution nuisance complaints.
- If you think the problem is caused by the building you should contact your landlord/management company/builders/homebond/building section of local authority as appropriate.
There are some private companies who test air quality in private dwellings. These are mainly large environmental consultancy firms who operate nationally. You can find a list of these in your classified directory. The Environmental Protection Agency does not endorse or maintain a list of any of these companies.
The Environmental Protection Agency monitor ambient air quality throughout the country. Real time air quality results are available on our website
