This document specifies a general laboratory test method for the determination of the area specific emission rate of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from samples of newly produced building products or furnishing under defined climate conditions. The method can also, in principle, be applied to samples of aged products. The emission data obtained can be used to calculate concentrations in a model room (see Table B.1).

This document is applicable to various emission test chambers used for the determination of the emission of VOCs from building products or furnishing.

This document is also applicable to samples of wood-based panels and other building products, in order to determine the emission rate of formaldehyde.

NOTE            In principle, this document can be applied to the study of any gas phase emissions from samples of building products and furnishing.
