EPHECT is a European collaborative action, which has received funding from the European Union, in the framework of the Health Programme. EPHECT focuses on consumer products, known to be potential sources of hazardous and other health relevant air pollutants in dwellings. The main aim is to identify and quantify a set of key indoor air pollutants and emerging pollutants emitted by a selection of consumer product classes, whilst simulating typical European use conditions. These outcomes of EPHECT will provide applicable tools to reduce the risk associated to the indoor use of consumer products and will lead to a healthier indoor environment for citizens.

EPHECT started on June the 1st 2010 under VITO (Vlaamse Instelling voor Technologisch Onderzoek) coordination and will last until May the 31st 2013.
