NSF International and the GreenGuard Environmental Institute (GEI) will jointly develop a health-based standard that addresses chemical emissions from products. This comprehensive standard will streamline the myriad methods currently used for measuring and limiting chemical emissions from products, and will incorporate the most recent science on human health and toxicology to provide acute and chronic chemical exposure limits.

The final GEI-NSF standard will serve as a valuable tool for building codes and rating systems and also help building owners and end users choose products that minimize air pollutants in indoor environments.

The GEI-NSF standard will be developed under the American National Standard Institute's (ANSI) Essential Requirements for adoption as an ANSI Standard.
