Abstract: European Commission has established an important initiative to put in place a harmonisation framework for the testing and the health-based evaluation of emissions from building products in the European Union (EU). This will allow overcome the discrepancies present among the various existing national systems that have been put into place to define acceptable levels of chemical pollutants via labelling of indoor product emissions. Moreover, this will also help towards the efficient implementation of the The Construction Products Directive (CPD) / Construction Products Regulation (CPR) as “market tool” to remove “barriers to trade” and allow CE marking as “information tool” to provide a harmonised information format concerning the product emissions performance classes.
