BREEAM International, the UK originated and globally used sustainable buildings certification system, published new criteria in March 2016.
These criteria include a basic change of its criteria for low-emitting interior products. Now the BREEAM criteria for low-emitting interior products are the same, or at least similar, for all products. They include limit values for formaldehyde, TVOC, TSVOC and carcinogens.
The new criteria, while being more stringent than before, allow to use existing standard testing for other purposes also to show compliance with the new BREEAM criteria.
