The aim of this study was to advice on the update of the odour emission factor for broiler houses that is used in the national regulation to control nuisance from odour from livestock (Rgv) in the Netherlands. The update was based a statistical analysis of odour emission data from field studies carried on 28 broiler barns between 1996 en 2014. The main conclusion drawn from this analysis was that the odour emission under current management conditions is higher than the so far used odour emission factor in the Rgv-regulation. The current odour emission factor in the Rgv assigned to broiler houses without additional air cleaning techniques amounts 0.24 OUE/s per placed bird. It is advised to adjust this factor to 0.33 OUE/s per placed bird.
