    WK44075

    1. Scope

    This standard provides requirements for publishing a Product Transparency Declaration including (1) listing of product ingredients, (2) product ingredients identified as hazards, (3) warning label requirements for finished building materials, (4) intentionally added heavy metals, (5) VOC emissions and VOC content information, (6) recycled content and (7) environmental certifications. This practice shall include all building products incorporated in a building.

    Designers and specifiers continually seek information on material and product attributes to ensure they and their clients are well informed for making the very best choices. Product Transparency Declarations provide specifiers with a list of ingredients in a building product and helps specifiers know whether any ingredients are present at levels requiring a warning notification


    Keywords

    product ingredients; VOC emissions; recycled content; hazardous ingredients; warning labels; heavy metals

    The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
