Abstract: Ambient air pollution containing the respirable fraction of particulate matter (PM10 and PM2.5) constitutes a significant public health concern in Europe. Measuring this type of pollution requires upgrading the existing equipment and improving methods. The aim of the workshop was to present and discuss the results of studies comparing a number of monitoring systems and to discuss the experiences of Member States in their developments of PM10 monitoring. The workshop formulated conclusions and recommendations concerning the need for PM10 and PM2.5 monitoring in the region, equipment testing and the dissemination of information. The recommendations should be considered in the implementation of national programmes and national environmental health action plans in particular. The supporting role of WHO in organizing meetings and disseminating information was also specified
