Sensory-based evaluation of building product emissions

Integration into the Blue Angel award criteria and assessment scheme of the Committee for Health Evaluation of Building Products


Emissions from building products considerably impair the quality of indoor air. The AgBB scheme has been used to evaluate the emissions of volatile organic compounds (⁠VOC⁠) from building products. The hygienic evaluation according to the AgBB scheme requires product-specific measurement methods which are already available for a number of products. They have been validated in co-operation with several research and testing institutes and have been included in the award criteria for the Blue Angel environmental label. The evaluation is, however, more strict and generally has lower limits than those in the AgBB scheme.
