PUBLICATION OF THE RESULTS OF THE NATIONAL EXPLORATORY CAMPAIGN TO MEASURE PESTICIDE RESIDUES IN
ANSES, INERIS – as a member of the Central Laboratory for Air Quality Monitoring (LCSQA) – and the network of
approved air quality monitoring associations (AASQAs) coordinated by ATMO France, are today publishing the
results of a campaign to measure pesticide residues in air, carried out from June 2018 to June 2019. During this
campaign, 75 substances were measured using a harmonised protocol on 50 sites covering a wide range of contexts
throughout France (metropolitan and overseas). Approximately 100,000 validated data were collected and
1,800 corresponding samples were analysed, helping to build the data foundation required to improve knowledge
of pesticide residues in ambient air, and thus better evaluate exposure in the general population. Ultimately, this
campaign will help devise the French strategy for monitoring pesticides in ambient air.
Over the course of one year, 100,000 data were collected, 1,800 samples were analysed and 75 substances were
measured in 50 sites across the country.
