The term “sick building syndrome” (SBS) is used to describe situations in which building occupants experience acute health and comfort problems that appear to be linked to time spent inside the building, but no specific illness or cause can be identified. In contrast, the term “building related illness” (BRI) is used when symptoms of diagnosable illness are identified and can be attributed directly to airborne building contaminants.*
