This study has done for setting the criteria for emission from building materials and a methodto test for formaldehyde (HCHO). Emission tests from major building products in acontrolled small chamber were performed with a field and laboratory emission cell (FLEC)to evaluate the features of chemical pollutants from those coverings. HURI (Housing &Urban Research Institute) proposed the test method and the emission criteria for HCHO,which considered many dimensions including test results and the influence on the buildingmaterials market. The criteria are divided into three steps; the second step will be applied in 3years after the application of the first set of criteria and the third will be applied in 5 years inturn. HURI is also preparing the criteria for VOCs and the test method will be helpful for thenext VOCs study.
