Conducted at our UKAS-accredited odour laboratory in the grounds of Wrest Park in Bedfordshire, Odour Sensitivity Testing is an assessment of your individual odour sensitivity (or acuity) to n-butanol. Testing is conducted according to the method prescribed in the European Standard BSEN13725:2003 to choose odour panellists.
The process of Odour Sensitivity Testing usually takes no more than two hours, and the result will allow you to compare your personal odour sensitivity with the population average, or in the case of odour complaints, with the complainant’s odour sensitivity.
On completion of the Odour Sensitivity Test, we will provide you with a certificate demonstrating your participation. This can be used to show your compliance with odour management plans and IAQM odour surveys to the regulator or planner.
Many of our customers also use the Odour Sensitivity Test as part of their continuing professional development (CPD) activities.
WHO IS ODOUR SENSITIVITY TESTING USEFUL FOR?

DON'T TAKE OUR WORD FOR IT
“It is useful to understand where on the spectrum of sensitivity you fall when dealing with odour assessments.”
Kat Johnson, Associate Director (Air Quality Specialist)
“It was really useful to become a “lab rat” and do the sniff tests as it will help me explain to customers how odour is assessed and tested in terms that they would understand, rather than just saying “it gets sent to the lab.”
Neil Whitton, Environmental Protection Officer
“Eye opening and definitely helped me to appreciate that everybody experiences smells differently!”
Abi Armstrong, Environment Officer
