Indoor air -- Part 11: Determination of the emission of volatile organic compounds from building products and furnishing -- Sampling, storage of samples and preparation of test specimens
This standard was last reviewed and confirmed in 2016. Therefore this version remains current.
Studies of the emission of volatile organic compounds from unused building products or furnishing in test chambers or cells require proper handling of the product prior to testing, and during the testing period.
ISO 16000-11:2006 defines three types of building products or furnishing: solid, liquid and combined. For each type, specifications are given for the sampling procedures, transport conditions, storage, and substrate used that can affect emissions of volatile organic compounds. For individual products, the preparation of a test specimen for each type is prescribed.
