Germany published revised draft VOC regulations

Germany asked for public comments on their revised drafts concerning national amendments to construction products regulation in May 2016. While the commenting period has gone, you can see the comments that were sent in on a special German webpage (in German only).

The draft documents concerning the regulations are available in German language only. But we explained their main content regarding VOC emissions from construction products into indoor air in English, we are about to edit this in French, and we wrote a summary in German.

The specifications and limits have not been changed, compared to earlier drafts. But the manner how these shall be documented, and compliance be proven, was specified in some more detail, with textile floorings as the first example.

Many aspects of assessment and monitoring of VOC emissions from construction products remain unclear. Nevertheless, the Eurofins operated product certification Indoor Air Comfort will be a good way to show compliance with the German rules in the future. For sure, other tools will be available as well.
