Figure C source code header Nitrogen dioxide - Hourly limit value for the protection of human health
In the air quality directive (2008/EC/50), the EU has set two limit values for nitrogen dioxide (NO2) for the protection of human health: the NO2 hourly mean value may not exceed 200 micrograms per cubic metre (µg/m3) more than 18 times in a year and the NO2 annual mean value may not exceed 40 micrograms per cubic metre (µg/m3). These limit values come into force for concentrations measured from 1.1.2010 so during 2009 a margin of tolerance equal to an annual mean value of 42 micrograms per cubic metre (μg/m3) is still in place

Figure Concentration status for the annual (left) and hourly (right) NO2 limit value for different station types in the EU in 2011
The graphs are based on the annual mean NO2 concentrations (in μg/m3) (left) and the 99.78 percentile of the NO2 hourly concentrations, corresponding to the 19th highest as defined by the limit value (right), for the various types of stations.

Figure Percentage of the EU urban population exposed to SO2 concentrations over the daily average limit value for protection of human health, 2002–2011
Monitoring data from AirBase provide the basis for estimating the European population's exposure to exceedances of the SO2 limit value of 125 µg/m3 as a daily average. According to the relevant directive, this limit value should not to be exceeded on more than three days in a year and was to be met by 2005.
