Workshop: Developing a Guide for Ambient Odour Assessment – 27 November, 2018 - Brisbane, QLD

Ambient odour assessment is frequently conducted in Australia and New Zealand, however a standard approach is not applied. The CASANZ Odour SIG recognises the need for an Australian/New Zealand guidance document to outline the method options, quality control/assurance requirements, results interpretation and a process for selecting the appropriate procedure based on the objectives of the odour assessment. The purpose of the workshop is to define the structure and contents of this document. Early bird registration available until 28 September 2018

The workshop objectives are:

  • Generate an agreed table of contents
  • Nominate and agree on an approach for each section
  • Develop a timeline and plan for completion of the Guide

The draft workshop agenda is as follows:

  • 10.00 – 10.30: Welcome and introductions
  • 10.30 – 11.30: Reasons for conducting an ambient odour assessment
  • 11.30 – 12.30: International methods and their application in Australia and New Zealand
  • 12.30 – 1.30: Lunch (provided)
  • 1.30 – 2.30: Decision tree approach and refinement of procedure
  • 2.30 – 3.00: Quality Control/Quality Assurance
  • 3.00 – 3.30: Practical considerations
  • 3.30 – 3.45 Afternoon tea (provided)
  • 3.45 – 4.30 Results interpretation
  • 4.30 – 5.00 Timeline and planning for next steps

The Guide should represent an approach which is scientifically valid, practical and robust.  Moreover, it should represent a consensus of odour experts and regulators.  To achieve this, we need your contribution and buy-in.
