FloorScore® is a system for certifying low VOC emissions of resilient and hard flooring systems and related adhesives.
FloorScore labelled products meet the indoor air emissions criteria of:
- Collaborative for High Performance Schools (CHPS)
- LEED® Green Building Rating Systems
- Green Guide for Health Care.
FloorScore tests to the CDPH SM 1.1 "Section 01350" Specification, which includes the Chronic Reference Exposure Levels (CRELs) concentrations established by the California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment and procedures developed by the US EPA. Assuming that other products in an office or classroom may be sources of VOCs, FloorScore certifies hard flooring products that do not exceed one-half the allowable concentration limits. In contrast to that, the limit value for formaldehyde, in line with the CDPH SM 1.1 "Section 01350", is 9 µg/m³
Eurofins Product Testing A/S is one of the approved testing laboratories.

Another comparison between limit values of AgBB, GUT, Blue Angel and CDPH Section 01350 was made available by GUT both in English and in German. It clearly shows that requirements of CDPH Section 01350 are much weaker than European requirements.
Eurofins offers documentation of compliance with above specifications on emissions of VOC by independent testing. Eurofins proposes to contact SCS in California for certification services.
