Green Performance Standard Approved for Stains

Monday, December 7, 2009

Comment | More

Green Seal, the independent certifying agency, has approved GS-47, a new environmental standard for stains and finishes.

The standard, in development for more than a year, includes product performance requirements and environmental and health requirements such as reduced use of hazardous substances and requires low volatile organic compound (VOC) content. The standard can serve as a tool to help companies begin to take action to improve their products and is available for Green Seal certification.

In addition to the standard approved this fall, Green Seal is in the final procedural steps of complying with the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) requirements for developing an American National Standard (ANS). Such a designation may permit broader use and distribution of the standard. The ANSI process includes a final public review.

Green Seal is now accepting applications for certification to GS-47 at  http://www.greenseal.org/getcertified/index.cfm.

Certification involves a Green Seal technical staff review of data and information as well as a site visit.
