Abstract 
Radon, which is one of the major pollutants in indoor environments, is a radioactive gas naturally formed during the decay of radium, which is found in places such as soil, building materials, and groundwater. In this study, we conduct to evaluate the contribution rate of radon concentration by radon exhalation from building materials in real-life environments.
   To control the effect of radon exhalation from the soil, measurements were conducted upper sixth floors. In order to evaluating radon concentration, in-situ method was used to measure radon exhaled from building material and indoor radon concentration was also measured with E-perm in same time.
Based on the results obtained in this study, it is expected that it will be used as basic data for setting the standard of radon exhalation from building materials in the future.
