Canadian Committee on
Indoor Air Quality
“The goal of the Canadian Committee on Indoor Air Quality (CCIAQ) is to improve indoor air quality in buildings and, ultimately, the health of occupants, by providing a national forum and clearinghouse for ‘best-of-knowledge’ information on the design and operations of buildings as they affect indoor air quality.”
CCIAQ’s Committee members can be found under the tab “Members“.
Our latest guide is available now: Module 16 – Legionella Control in Building Water Systems
This module aims to provide “best-of-knowledge” information to help building owners and managers control risks associated with Legionella in building water systems. The objectives are:
● To raise awareness on the risk that airborne Legionella-containing aerosols can pose to building occupants.
● To guide the development of a Legionella water management plan.
● To provide recommendations for the operation and maintenance of building water systems with regard to the control of Legionella.
● To support the interpretation of results from routine Legionella monitoring.
● To guide the preparation of a response to a Legionnaire’s disease outbreak and outline the steps that can be taken in the event of an outbreak.
