Concerns regarding the status of AS 1324.2:2003 as a test standard for air filter efficiency have been addressed. The recent edition of the ABCB handbook ‘Indoor Air Quality Verification Methods’ confirms that AS 1324.2:2003 remains relevant and applicable for Performance Solutions and Deemed-to-Satisfy (DTS) Solutions, for the purposes of the NCC (National Construction Code). The handbook provides guidance for designers and installers, listing AS 1324.2:2003 as one of the suitable test standards for air filter efficiency. For DTS Solutions, AS 1324.2:2003 is the only applicable test standard.

The updated handbook is available on the ABCB website.
