    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Describes a horizontal reference method for the determination of emissions of regulated dangerous substances from construction products into indoor air.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Technical Specification specifies a horizontal reference method for the determination of emissions of regulated dangerous substances from construction products into indoor air. This method is applicable to volatile organic compounds, semi-volatile organic compounds, and volatile aldehydes. It is based on the use of a test chamber and subsequent analysis of the organic compounds by GC-MS or HPLC. NOTE 1 Supplemental information is given on indirect test methods (Annex B) and on measuring very volatile organic compounds (see informative Annex C). NOTE 2 This Technical Specification describes the overall procedure and makes use of existing standards mainly by normative reference, complemented when necessary with additional or modified normative requirements.
