Article Air legislation in Europe
Air pollution is not the same everywhere. Different pollutants are released into the atmosphere from a wide range of sources. Once in the atmosphere, they can transform into new pollutants and spread around the world. Designing and implementing policies to address this complexity are not easy tasks. Below is an overview of air legislation in the European Union.

Figure Twenty-sixth highest ozone 2010, based on daily running 8h max with percentage of valid measurements 75 % in μg/m3
The map shows the proximity of measured O3 concentrations to the target value set in the European Union's Air Quality Directive. At sites marked with dark orange and red dots, the daily maximum 8-hour mean O3 concentration exceeds the 120 μg/m3 threshold on more than 25 days per year (the policy target is set at max. 25 days of exceedance per year, averaged over 3 years).
