This study was to assess the health risk of VOCs in indoor air under uncontrolled Korean-IAQ regulation.We measured the concentrations of formaldehyde and 5 VOCs (benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, xylene, andstyrene) in indoor air at 232 public buildings for four kinds of public facility (32 wedding halls, 17Gymnasiums, 20 Galleries, and 166 Welfare facilities) around the country. There were estimated the humanexposure dose and health risk used average time and frequencies of questionaries for subjects such asfacility users and office workers. There were estimated the lifetime excess cancer risk (ECR) forcarcinogens (formaldehyde and benzene) and hazard quotient (HQ) for non-carcinogens (toluene,ethylbenzene, xylene and styrene). For the facility user, the average levels of ECRs were 10-4∼10-5 and 10-5∼10-6, respectively, for formaldehyde and benzene in all facilities. HQs of four non-carcinogens were notexceeded 1.0 in all facilities and subjects. In addition, there was showed the highest ECR in the smokingfacility.
