Laboratories and testing methodologies guidance

Technical Clarification Number
IEQ14-T-OB1-1021

Guidance
2015-09-17

The following guidance is provided for laboratories and testing methodologies.

The emission levels must be established by a NATA or ISO/IEC 17025 registered laboratory, the laboratory must be certified for each applicable testing methodology. i.e. each testing methodology identified in TC IEQ14-T-OB1-0534 (Formaldehyde Emission Testing Guidance Document on Formaldehyde Emission Limit Values for Different Testing Methods) must itself be NATA or ISO/IEC 17025 certified for it to meet the credit requirements.

Formaldehyde minimisation and 'Shell & Core' spaces

Technical Clarification Number
IEQ14-T-OB1-0366

Guidance
2013-07-22

The following guidance is provided for spaces delivered as ‘Shell & Core’, as defined in the Green Star SA Office Design v1 Technical Manual.

Regardless of delivery type (i.e. Conventional, Integrated or Shell & Core), the scope of the credit criteria is applicable to those applications of composite wood products within the base building, except excluded applications as stated in the technical manual.

Documentation - test methods

Technical Clarification Number
IEQ14-T-OB1-0260

Guidance
2011-03-10

In addition to the 'Documentation Requirements' stipulated in the Green Star SA Office (Version 1) Technical Manual, product datasheet(s) for composite wood product(s) must clearly nominate the test method to which the stated emission limit(s) and/or emission rate(s) have been determined.

Documentation - Test reports/emissions values

Technical Clarification Number
IEQ14-T-OB1-0040

Guidance
2009-06-29

Actual test reports and emissions values are required in the documentation for this credit. A simple statement of ‘E1 compliance’ is not acceptable.
