European VOC emissions testing standard EN 16516 ready for last steps of approval

After the European harmonized emissions testing standard prEN 16516 was approved by a huge majority in a ballot of the national CEN member organizations, the comments that had been sent in along with the vote have been handled in a meeting of CEN TC351 WG2. No major changes occurred. The approved changes are clarifications, or corrections of spelling or grammatical errors.

As no major changes of the voted text occurred, the working group recommended that the TC351 makes use of the possibility to proceed directly to publication of the standard as EN 16516 in 2016. In that case a final ballot, the so-called “formal vote”, would be skipped. If the decision to follow that “fast track” procedure would not be accepted, the final version would be subject to another vote and be published as EN 16516 not before 2017.

You will read here when it is clear which of these options will apply.

The final publication of EN 16516 will help making VOC emissions testing better comparable and better accepted across Europe.
