The European harmonized emissions testing standard now was approved with huge majority in a ballot of the national CEN member organizations. Formerly published and in use as Technical Specification CEN/TS 16516, the revised version prEN 16516 contains numerous additional specifications to improve performance, repeatability and reproducibility of the chamber testing methodology.
The prEN 16516 was discussed in the different countries and received this positive vote now. After handling comments that had been sent in along with the vote in a meeting in November 2015, publication as full EN 16516 can be expected in first half of 2016.
This will help making VOC emissions testing better comparable and better accepted across Europe.
