Abstract: Growing awareness about requirements for healthy indoor air has resulted in a demand for products demonstrated to be safe for use in indoor environments. Emissions from construction products have been identified as a significant source of indoor air pollution since the beginning of the 1980¿s. Different approaches to evaluate construction products have emerged over time, and considerable practical experience has been gained during recent years. In some markets, emissions originating from indoor construction products have been noticeably reduced by developing quality criteria and labelling systems. A detailed review of the existing labelling schemes was compiled in 2005 in the European Collaborative Action, Report 24. This paper reports on ongoing activities concerningthe development of a harmonised evaluation concept that is under elaboration by the Danish ICL, the German AgBB, the Finnish M1 and the JRC/IHCP/PCE.
