    2 Scope

    2.1 The document is applicable to the determination of organic emissions from building materials, finishes and furnishings (See Appendix a). This is a product performance based document, and the complete toxicity effects of the emissions are beyond the scope of the program.

    2.2 The use of environmental test chambers and indoor exposure models to characterize the dynamic emissions from products and their components are well established.

    2.3 The achievement of test results, that have meaning within the context of the program, require rigorous sample selection procedures, defined sample collection and handling procedures, and the employment of precise and accurate analytical measurement systems and procedures. Additionally, the manufacturer of the product(s) evaluated in reference to the requirements set forth by the document must have in place a production quality control system that is capable of assuring products shall be manufactured with consistently close results in similar emissions characteristics over time. Such relevant requirements are set forth in standards and procedures that are referenced by this document.

    2.4 This document does not purport to address the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of the document to establish appropriate safety and health practices, as well as to determine what regulatory limitations, if any, may exist.
