A regulation of VOC emissions from construction products was proposed now for Sweden

The Swedish Chemical Agency, Kemikalieinspektionen, had received the task to investigate a Swedish regulation limiting the VOC emissions from construction products. A report was published in 2015.

It proposes a regulation specifying that all products used at interior floors, walls and ceilings shall comply with a list of limit values when tested after 28 days storage in a ventilated test chamber.

Both the limit values and the documentation duties are very much in line with the existing Belgian regulation, except that the Belgian regulation today is applied to flooring products only (the application to walls and ceilings still is under preparation).

If the regulation is adapated by the Swedish government, then it could be in force from early 2018 on.

A fast analysis of the report shows that the proposed regulation harmonizes with the plans to include a declaration of performance regarding VOC emissions into the regulations on CE marking. Compliance with the proposed regulation could also be shown with an Indoor Air Comfort or an Indoor Air Comfort GOLD certificate which combine the regulations in all EU Member States into one documentation and certification program.
