GUT label for textile floorings

Sidebar Image

The GUT label is an evaluation system for low VOC emissions carpets within the PRODIS label, an initiative of GUT and ECRA.

VOC emission testing normally is based on a test after 28 days storage in test chamber, with the option to stop the test already after 7 days or even after 3 days in case of very low emissions - please see here details and limit values.

Eurofins Product Testing A/S is one of the approved testing laboratories the reports of which are accepted for GUT labelling.

A 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 by CRI in the USA are much weaker than European requirements.

Eurofins VOC related services

Eurofins offers documentation of compliance with the specifications on emissions of VOC and aldehydes by independent and ISO 17025 accredited testing, and if relevant also with external surveillance (inspections, re-testing), and certification, e.g. in combination with the Eurofins operated certification programme Indoor Air Comfort - certified products.

Eurofins operates both an accredited and notified test house and an approved ÜZ certification body. VOC emissions testing for any program or regulation can be easily combined with tests for other regulations or labels such as Belgian VOC regulationFrench VOC regulationsGerman VOC regulationsEMICODE, German Blue Angel, Finnish M1 and US tests. Such combinations allow to save money compared with separate testing for each of these purposes.

Certification and testing services for Ü markCE mark and the Eurofins certification program Indoor Air Comfort - certified products can be ordered in parallel for use on different market segments - there will be significant costs saving when compared to ordering these services separately.
