ASTM Committee D22.05 on Indoor Air
In 1985, ASTM formed a working group in Subcommittee D22.05 on Indoor Air, part of Committee D22 on Sampling and Analysis of Atmospheres, to develop a series of analytical test methods to address asbestos in the indoor environment. D22.05’s standards have, and continue to play, a preeminent role in all aspects relating to the methodology for sampling and analysis of source emissions, ambient, workplace and indoor atmospheres, and meteorological conditions.
International Society of Indoor Air Quality and Climate (ISIAQ)
International Society of Indoor Air Quality and Climate (ISIAQ) is an international, independent, multidisciplinary, scientific, non-profit organization whose purpose is to support the creation of healthy, comfortable and productive indoor environments.
Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory Indoor Environment Department
The Indoor Environment Department conducts a broad program of research, technology development and dissemination activities directed toward improving the health, comfort and energy efficiency of the indoor environment. Our work focuses on reducing the energy used for thermally conditioning and distributing ventilation air in buildings, improving indoor air quality (IAQ), thermal comfort and the health and productivity of building occupants, and understanding human exposures to environmental pollutants found in indoor and outdoor air.
California Air Resources Board
The California Air Resources Board (ARB) carries out a non-regulatory Indoor Air Quality and Personal Exposure Assessment Program (Indoor Program) that includes sponsored research, exposure assessment, development of indoor air quality guidelines, and public education and outreach. The goal of the Indoor Program is to identify and reduce Californians' exposures to indoor air pollutants. The ARB is committed to pursuing actions to prevent indoor pollution and to effectively reduce the significant risk it currently poses to Californians.
Technical University of Denmark - International Centre for Indoor Environment and Energy
The Centre's interdisciplinary research programme aims at developing design criteria and innovative technical solutions for the creation of healthy, comfortable and productive indoor environments that satisfy human requirements at moderate energy consumption. Many research projects involve exposure of human subjects to single or multiple indoor environment parameters and subsequent observation of the effect on their comfort, health and productivity. Studies take place both in indoor environment chambers, field experiment offices and in buildings in practice.
InformeDesign has been created and sponsored to bring research and practice aspects of the design professions together. The designers of the built environment face a multitude of complex challenges: resource, social, environmental, behavioral, and design in nature. InformeDesign will bring research from a vast array of reputable research sources to the design community that address those challenges.

Building America Solution Center
The Building America Solution Center provides residential building professionals with access to expert information on hundreds of high-performance design and construction topics, including air sealing and insulation, HVAC components, windows, indoor air quality, and much more.
Advancing Healthy Homes
The initiative represents a bold new vision for addressing the nation’s health and economic burdens caused by preventable hazards associated with the home. The Strategy for Action encourages federal agencies to take preemptive actions that will help reduce the number of American homes with health and safety hazards.
Indoor Environmental Quality Research Roadmap 2012–2030: Energy-Related Priorities
This report is an update and expansion of the 2002 report, Energy –Related Indoor Environmental Quality Research: A Priority Agenda. . It serves two purposes: (1) to summarize lessons learned since 2002, when the first indoor environmental quality research roadmap was completed, and (2) to identify indoor environmental quality research needs specifically related to the State’s policy to achieve net zero energy in new building construction and retrofitting of more existing buildings during the next two decades.
