Abstract: The WHO Air quality guidelines for Europe were updated and revised in 1996. They will form a basis for the derivation of national or international air quality standards. Nevertheless, simply adopting the WHO guidelines might lead to standards that could not be achieved in practice at acceptable cost. To provide guidance to countries on how to move from health-based guidelines to legally binding standards, a working group met to discuss the technical issues that need to be considered in setting air quality standards, such as: analytical methodology, technical feasibility, monitoring strategy, cost-benefit and cost-effectiveness analysis, and stakeholder involvement. The working group achieved its major goal in writing a report that will serve as an integral part of the introductory chapter of the revised WHO air quality guidelines
