The particulate matter (PM) in the air of office environments plays an important role in the daily human exposure in urban areas. The present paper reports a few measurements in order to integrate the knowledge of the sector concerning pollution in offices. The parameter analysed is PM, referred to in three fractions of interest, depending on their dimensions. Some considerations are reported in order to set or confirm specific criteria for the correct management of office air quality.
