Technical rule [WITHDRAWN]
This Technical Specification specifies a horizontal reference method for the determination of emissions of regulated dangerous substances from construction products into indoor air. This method is applicable to volatile organic compounds, semi-volatile organic compounds, and volatile aldehydes. It is based on the use of a test chamber and subsequent analysis of the organic compounds by GC-MS or HPLC. Supplemental information is given on indirect test methods (Annex B) and on measuring very volatile organic compounds (see informative Annex C). This Technical Specification describes the overall procedure and makes use of existing standards mainly by normative reference, complemented when necessary with additional or modified normative requirements. This Technical Specification is primarily intended for determining the emission behaviour of construction products, as required by national regulations under the Construction Product Regulation (Regulation (EU) No. 305/2011). The committee responsible for this standard is NA 005-053-02 GA "Gemeinschaftsarbeitsausschuss NABau/KRdL: Innenraumluft (SpA zu CEN/TC 351/WG 2)" ("Joint working committee NABau/KRdL: Indoor air (national mirror committee for CEN/TC 351/WG 2)") at DIN.
