Guidance

2018-07-04

Projects shall be allowed to use the GreenGuard certification in conjunction with laboratory test reports for Composite Wood products as long as the resultant Formaldehyde emission values are compliant with GreenGuard and/or if the testing methodology used is CEN/TS 16516. Where a different testing method is employed to show compliance with limits stipulated in Table IEQ 14.1, the project team must provide evidence of how the chosen testing parameters will result in a higher emission value than any of the relevant test methods listed in Table IEQ 14.1.

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.
