These Regulations replace the Air Quality Standards Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2007 (S.R. 2007 No.265) which are revoked.

Part 1 of the Regulations deals with definitions and designates the Department as the competent authority for the purposes of Council Directives 2008/50/EC and 2004/107/EC.

Part 2 of the Regulations deals with assessment of ambient air quality. Chapter 1 relates to assessment of sulphur dioxide, nitrogen dioxide and oxides of nitrogen, particulate matter, lead, benzene and carbon monoxide.

Part 4 of the Regulations deals with requirements in relation to PM2.5 in addition to the limit value and target value for this pollutant.

Part 5 of the Regulations imposes requirements on the Department, after consultation with other Northern Ireland departments, to draw up air quality plans in relation to limit values and target values and short-term action plans in relation to alert thresholds. Short-term action plans may also be used in relation to limit values and target values.
