Eurofins partners with leading US certification firm, SCS, for Indoor Air Quality Certification
In a landmark move to better serve European customers with interest in the US market, Eurofins Product Testing A/S, Denmark has established a partnership with Scientific Certification Systems (SCS) of Emeryville, California, for third-party indoor air quality certification. SCS’s industry-leading indoor air certifications, SCS Indoor Advantage™ and SCS Indoor Advantage™ Gold for furniture and other indoor products, as well as FloorScore® indoor air quality certification for flexible and hard surface flooring, will now be accessible to European manufacturing facilities.
Eurofins Product Testing A/S, Denmark, is SCS’s first European lab accredited for indoor air quality testing. Eurofins is a worldwide leader in its field. After the recently launched European certification scheme, Indoor Air Comfort, Eurofins now opens doors to the well-established US counterparts Indoor Advantage, Indoor Advantage Gold, FloorScore, and ANSI/BIFMA M7.1/X7.1. This supports the strategy to offer global solutions to global industries.
The partnership with SCS means that Eurofins test reports can now not only be used for European low emission labels, but also in the important US market.
Companies will need such documentation for showing compliance with specifications of US LEED rating systems for sustainable buildings.
In keeping with international standards, Eurofins is accredited to ISO/IEC 17025, demonstrating quality assurance for SCS and Eurofins customers. ISO accreditation is internationally accepted according to mutual agreements between the accreditation bodies in most countries in Europe and Asia as well as USA, Canada, Australia, Brazil, Mexico, and South Africa. The reliability and accuracy of Eurofins data, in concert with the leadership certification standards for which SCS is known, help clients, specifiers and other purchasers make informed decisions on risks and meet increasingly stringent quality and safety standards and the demands of regulatory authorities around the world.
