Role in the UFIREG project:

Authorised by the ministry of the Environment, CHMI is responsible for air quality measurement and assessment in the Czech Republic. Performance of these tasks is required by national and EU legislation(Act No.86/2002 as amended and Directive 2008/50/EC). The measuring network covers the entire Czech Republic and provides data on the concentration of all the pollutants required by the Directive. In line with the requirements, the greatest attention is devoted to the monitoring of the concentration of suspended particulates and the substances bound to them (heavy metals /HM and polyaromatic hydrocarbons/PAH). The Institute promotes co-operation primarily at the European level, with the European Environment Agency (EEA) in the area of air quality assessment and with the Joint Research Centre (JRC) in the area of air quality measurement. Extensive activities geared towards air quality and emission measurement are pursued under the Convention on Long-Range Transboundary Air Pollution (CLRTAP). The CHMI is responsible to measure ultrafine particles in Prague.
