Broker Professionals Dedicated to Integrity At a time when commercial real estate was burgeoning in Southern California, a group of visionary brokers, in 1960, founded the American Industrial Real Estate Association. In the ensuing years, the “AIR” came to signify respect and integrity. This is no accident. It was the goal of these highly respected brokerage community leaders to bring stability to a fast-growing profession and, perhaps more important, to raise professional standards, ethics, cooperation, and continuing education among its practitioners.
Rules, Standard Forms Vital This stability was achieved in no small measure by the Association’s prompt establishment of Rules of Professional Conduct for commercial brokers aimed at ensuring fair play in transactions. Complementing this were Standard Sale and Lease Contracts, and particularly vital to brokers, the Standard Owner/Agency Agreement, which was tailored to solidify the broker’s status in transactions.
AIR was also founded as an organization by brokers, for brokers. As such, at its core is the practice of advancing the success of its membership, while providing their clients with optimum service and credibility.
Ongoing Industry Outreach Grounded in these values, AIR has come to represent the highest degree of integrity and outreach in a dynamically changing industry.
Significantly, in an effort to expand its outreach to the broadest range of the brokerage community, the Association is now doing business as AIR Commercial Real Estate Association in order to incorporate the office and retail sectors of the industry.
Today, with more than 1600 real estate professionals in over 350 firms, ranging from global companies to local boutique firms blanketing the eight-county Southern California region, AIR represents approximately 95 percent of the region’s brokerage community. This makes it the nation’s largest organization of its kind.
A Working Organization AIR members are licensed real estate professionals who actively specialize in the sale and leasing of industrial/commercial properties. The Association is governed by a Board of Directors drawn from its membership. The Board of Directors meets monthly to conduct the business of AIR.
AIR is a "working", non-profit corporation whose many programs and services are designed to advance the success of the AIR’s members.

In 1995, NIOSH developed a new set of regulations in 42 CFR 84 [PDF] (also referred to as "Part 84") for testing and certifying non-powered, air-purifying, particulate-filter respirators. The new Part 84 respirators have passed a more demanding certification test than the old respirators (e.g., dust; dust and mist; dust, mist, and fume; spray paint; pesticide) certified under 30 CFR 11 (also referred to as "Part 11"). Recommendations for non-powered, air-purifying particulate respirators have been updated from previous editions of the Pocket Guide to incorporate Part 84 respirators; Part 11 terminology has been removed. For more information concerning the selection of N-, R-, or P-series (Part 84) particulate respirators click here .
