Abstract This guidance note describes the operating principles of local exhaust ventilation systems and the fields in which they are used. The equipment concerned can be classified into two main categories: enclosing devices (fume cupboards, microbiological safety cabinets, laminar flow hoods, chemical hoods, glove boxes with air purification) and induction devices (mobile extractor heads, suction tables, non-physical hoods and covers). The regulatory principles governing laboratory ventilation are also presented, together with general remarks on air purification. Glossary of French terms.
