CEN TC 351 worked on an European VOC emission chamber testing standard. During long time it was unclear whether there would be funding available for validation of this standard. It would not have been published without such validation.
End of August 2010 the signed contract for funding of the first step of validation has arrived. Robustness validation can be started, meaning that an investigation can be undertaken of how small changes of the main testing parameters will influence the test result.
2 years are foreseen for this step. CEN TC 351 WG 2 working group will define the detailed steps and start tendering process.
Funding is granted by European Commission.
