Air Quality Data Scottish Government with support from SEPA will commission a review of air quality data collection and reporting in Scotland. The review will identify any notable gaps in data provision, with recommendations on how to fill these. The review will also provide recommendations on how current air quality data and methodologies can be more effectively integrated with other datasets, particularly those relating to transport, human health, environmental quality and spatial planning. Scottish Government (EQCE) SEPA
