This standard is issued under the fixed designation D ; the number immediately following appropriate ASTM test methods for the determination of VOC. The goal of this analysis was to determine volatile organic components (VOCs) of the sample product SR by ASTM. D Analysis of the.

The US version and the global version are operated by U. Copies and modified versions of that rating system can be found in the Gulf region, in Italy, in Australia, and in some Asian regions.
Some of these regions apply modified versions of LEED. Motivation for having LEED certification of a building is to achieve higher value of a building in the balance, or better sales or better rental price with sustainability as additional argument, or to promote public perception of the company operating a LEED certified building, or to promote environment and health.
The procedure is to collect points by fulfilling “credits” for proper consideration of environmental aspects e. Motivation to show LEED compliance of a product is to show to LEED building ast, that use of a specific asrm helps collecting points in the certification process.
This may give access to LEED projects that typically are large buildings with high material consumption. Demonstrating LEED compliance of a product can be an important tool in marketing strategy. The new version brings substantial changes and improvements.
In that period, and until all such buildings are finished, manufacturers of products will face requests whether their products comply with LEED both with respect to the old and the new version. LEEDthe US originated rating system for sustainable buildings, is requested by more and more building planners across the Globe. Products cannot be LEED certified.
In that period, and until all LEED building projects have been completed, manufacturers of products will face requests whether their products comply with LEED both with respect to the old and the new version. Between one and three points can be earned if the specifications on low VOC emissions are fulfilled partly or completely.
Eurofins Product Testing is a member of U. It is important to understand that no testing laboratory can be LEED approved. In that period, manufacturers of products will face requests whether their products comply with LEED both with respect to the old and the new version.
New in October For details please see the credit documents. Between one and three points can be earned if the specifications on low VOC are fulfilled partly or completely. VOC emissions limits are not calculated for single products, e. LEED projects can follow different approaches. See our special page for the related LEED specifications.
Besides VOC, also water evaporates then.
Therefore a water determination is added and all water is subtracted. Furthermore, all VOCs that are not relevant for ozone generation in ground-level atmosphere “exempt compounds” are subtracted.
Here you can download an illustration. Limit values are different per product group and application. Some examples of limit values Volatiles minus water minus exempt compounds:.
The data can be determined by calculation or by testing. For testing, the laboratory needs to know what type of adhesive or sealant the test is about. Please see a table with the different product groups and respective limit values.
And please use our LEED specific order form. For testing, the laboratory needs to know what type of paint or coating the test is about. All carpet and all carpet cushion must meet the testing and product requirements of the Carpet and Rug Institute Green Label Plus program. The additional VOC concentration limits listed in Section 9.
Earlier LEED versions before had the same requirement, but only for carpets and not for other types of flooring. In its call minutes of January 11,it was stated under item 4. Low-Emitting Materials- Flooring Systems as it pertains to carpets. The TAG confirmed that all carpet installed in the building interior must meet the testing and product requirements of the program, however, this does not preclude products that meet these requirements but are tested by a means other than GLP.
It clearly shows that requirements of CRI are much weaker than European requirements.

All hard surface flooring must be certified as compliant with the FloorScore standard by an independent third party.
Flooring products covered by FloorScore include vinyl, linoleum, laminate flooring, wood flooring, ceramic flooring, rubber flooring and wall base. Ceramic tiles, and mineral flooring without organic coating, are assumed to comply without testing. Ceramic tiles and mineral flooring without organic coating is assumed to comply without testing – see 4th bullet of low-emitting floorings credit, e.
Additionallyconcrete, wood, bamboo, and cork floor finishes such as sealer, stain and finish must meet the requirements of as specified in LEED credit IEQ 4.
System furniture furniture made of several elements, e. This can be shown either by just testing in a qualified laboratory, or by certification byan independent third party.
Option 3 is not used any longer in reality, and therefore it was skipped from the credit in a recent agenda. GBC Italia has some different specifications, compared with other countries. Please note that this is the weakest requirement of any LEED program across the world. Leathership in Energy and Environmental Design. While VOC emissions limits shall protect building occupants against long-term exposures, VOC content limits shall protect those applying these products, and they shall limit early exposure of occupants shortly after painting, sealing or gluing.
But only the versions that are cited in the LEED credit documents shall be applied for this purpose. As LEED refers to earlier versions asmt the original documents, the limits have changed which means here, they are lower now astn in LEED version.
As these regulations do not include so-called exempt compounds that are assumed not to contribute to urban smog formationthe addition of exempt compounds to LEED compliant products is further limited: Methylene chloride and perchloroethylene must not be added intentionally.
For some building types hospitals, schools this applies also to exterior coatings. Alternative testing methods e. ISO are accepted astn the Californian testing protocols are not reasonably applicable. LEED and products in Italy.
