SCS Releases IAQ Testing Protocol

Scientific Certification Systems, Inc.has released an

Indoor Air Quality Performance certification program for interior products. The program is designed to demonstrate product conformance with the indoor emissions limits associated with California’s Section 01350 specification, as well as emission criteria in the LEED

® Rating System and international standards for environmental labeling. This new certification program is likely to compete with the Greenguard™ Certification Program, which until now was the only certification program of its kind in the U.S. (see


Vol. 12, No. 10). To support the certification program, SCS also released a Standard describing its approved protocol for the testing of VOC emissions in small-scale environmental chambers. See for details.
