Abstract: Air pollution and the related health problems facing South Africa today are a unique blend of those faced by both developing and developed countries. Poor air quality is a concern in many parts of the country, potentially contributing to negative human health impacts. South African air quality legislation makes government responsible for managing and controlling ambient air pollution concentrations. In order to assist in this process, eight compounds, namely particulate matter , sulphur dioxide, ozone, carbon monoxide, benzene, lead, and nitrogen dioxide have been identified as priority pollutants for air quality management, and ambient air quality standards have been gazetted for these pollutants.
