This section lists independent certifications that relate to contents and health-related characteristics. It does not include information on project-level certification systems such as LEED, Living Building Challenge, WELL, or others.
34. VOC Emissions. An entry is required for all products. There are two primary standard methods for this testing: California Department of Public Health Standard Method and the international AgBB standard. Programs that certify VOC emissions with the California standard include Indoor Advantage Gold™, FloorScore®, and GREENGUARD Gold. For some product types, there is no accepted emissions modeling scenario for evaluating the testing results, so “N/A” is indicated. If the manufacturer has chosen not to test or certify the product, “not tested” is indicated. Or, a product might be indicated as “inherently non-emitting source per LEED” if it meets the appropriate LEED qualifications (see http://www. usgbc.org/node/2614095?return=/credits/new-construction/v4/indoor-environmental-quality).
35. VOC Compliance. All products that are wet-applied on site, such as paints, adhesives, or other coatings, must have an entry noting the certification or applicable standard with which the product complies.
36. Applicable Facilities. This section includes the specific manufacturing facilities that are covered by the certifications and standards noted above.
