This European Standard 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 very volatile aldehydes. It is based on the use of a test chamber and subsequent analysis of the organic compounds by GC-MS or HPLC.

This document specifies a general laboratory test method for evaluating the reduction of formaldehyde
and other carbonyl compounds (aldehydes and ketones) concentrations by sorptive building materials.
This method applies to boards, wallpapers, carpets, paint products, and other building materials. The
sorption of those target compounds, i.e. formaldehyde and other carbonyl compounds, can be brought
about by adsorption, absorption and chemisorption.
