Between one and three points can be earned if the specifications on low VOC emissions are fulfilled partly or completely.

Please see a table with the different product groups and respective limit values. Here you can download an illustration. GBC Italia has some different specifications, compared with other countries.

New in October It is important to understand that no testing laboratory can be LEED approved.

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. It clearly shows that requirements of CRI are much weaker than European requirements.

We recommend users of early versions of Internet Explorer to update to Version 10 or later. Some examples of limit values Volatiles minus water minus exempt compounds:. The new version brings substantial changes and improvements.

For details please see the credit documents. The TAG confirmed that all carpet installed in the building interior must meet the testing and product d960 of the program, however, this does not preclude products that meet these requirements but are tested by a means other than GLP.

Aetm Product Testing is a member of U. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.


To ensure currency, contact the local air pollution control agency. R3960 are accepted if the Californian testing protocols are not reasonably applicable. All hard surface flooring must be certified as compliant with the FloorScore standard by an independent third party. Earlier LEED versions before had the same requirement, but only for carpets and not for other types of flooring.

Please note that this is the weakest requirement of any LEED program across the world. Between sstm and three points can be earned if the specifications on low VOC are fulfilled partly or completely. Limit values are different per product group and application. Note; The regulatory definition, under the control of the U.

ASTM D3960 – 05(2018)

Methylene chloride and perchloroethylene must not be added intentionally. 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. The additional VOC concentration limits listed in Section 9. This can be shown either by just testing in a qualified d39660, or by certification byan independent third party.

Furthermore, all VOCs that are not asmt for ozone generation in ground-level atmosphere “exempt compounds” are subtracted. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard. In that period, manufacturers of products will face requests r3960 their products comply with LEED both with respect to the old and the new version.

As these regulations do not include so-called exempt compounds that are assumed not to d360 to urban smog d390the addition of exempt compounds to LEED compliant products is further limited: Motivation to show LEED compliance of a product is to show to LEED building projects that use of a specific product helps collecting points in the certification process. For testing, the laboratory needs to know what type of adhesive or sealant the test is about. 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.


The procedure is to collect points by fulfilling “credits” for proper consideration of environmental aspects e. Option 3 is not used any longer in reality, and therefore it was skipped from the credit in a recent agenda. See our special page for the related LEED specifications.

The US version and the global version are operated by U. VOC emissions limits are not calculated for single products, e. As LEED refers to earlier versions of the original documents, the limits have changed which means here, they are lower d33960 than in LEED version.

For testing, the laboratory needs to know what type of paint or coating the test is about.

Asgm testing methods e.

LEED and products in Italy. But only the versions that are cited in the LEED credit documents shall be applied for this purpose. Ceramic tiles and mineral flooring without organic coating is assumed to comply without testing – see 4th bullet of low-emitting floorings credit, e.
