In this paper we will try to introduce some of the information that a group of 14 experts from different countries is discussing regarding odour regulations.
The aim is to publish the first critical review over odour legislation in several parts of the world, analysing not only from a descriptive way any single regulation, but also from a critical point of view. This review will try to identify points to improve and will offer alternatives to some common issues when dealing with regulating the odour impact. The final paper will be published in a Journal not determined yet.
