The Danish Building & Property Agency is to carry out testing for potentially harmful substances in AU's buildings.

From the week beginning Monday 9 June, the Danish Building & Property Agency will carry out a range of tests in AU’s buildings. This is part of a general survey of all government-owned buildings aimed at mapping the presence of any harmful PCB substances.

There is no reason to suppose that the tests will uncover levels of PCB in AU's buildings that exceed safe levels. As a member of staff you should not, therefore, be worried if air samples etc. are taken in the premises where you work on a daily basis. The samples are primarily for data collection to be used in the Danish Building & Property Agency’s analyses.

Many of the university's buildings have either been renovated within the past few years or will be in the near future. The survey will therefore help to ensure that the buildings at AU are tested for PCBs and that any harmful substances are removed as part of the coming renovations.

The Danish Building & Property Agency’s final report is expected to be published in June 2015.
