IEEE White Paper

Introduction to the IEEE P2520(TM) Series of Standards on Olfaction Devices and Systems

A new series of international odor monitoring and analysis standards are being developed by the IEEE Sensors Council and the IEEE Industrial Electronics Society, in collaboration with the International Society for Olfaction and Chemical Sensing. The standards are designed for those developing and using odor analysis devices, electronic noses, and Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) analyzers. It is structured as a series of standards that target different, common, odor emission applications, such as outdoor air pollution and chemical processes. The hope is that by targeting specific applications more traction can be gained than during previous attempts at standards. This white paper gives a brief introduction to the series and solicits participation by individual scientists and engineers who see the importance of this work, by companies producing monitoring equipment, and by entities that set regulations that govern this field.

Working Group Details

Other Activities From This Working Group

Current projects that have been authorized by the IEEE SA Standards Board to develop a standard.

No Active Projects

Standards approved by the IEEE SA Standards Board that are within the 10-year lifecycle.

No Active Standards

These standards have been replaced with a revised version of the standard, or by a compilation of the original active standard and all its existing amendments, corrigenda, and errata.

No Superseded Standards

These standards have been removed from active status through a ballot where the standard is made inactive as a consensus decision of a balloting group.

No Inactive-Withdrawn Standards

These standards are removed from active status through an administrative process for standards that have not undergone a revision process within 10 years.

No Inactive-Reserved Standards
