(lifePR) ( Köln, )
Since May 31th, 2012, the eco-INSTITUT in Cologne is approved testing laboratory for the quality label M1 - Emission Classification of Building Materials. This classification is the leading one in Scandinavia and is assigned in three categories - of which M1 is the best one meaning very low-emission - by the Building Information Foundation RTS. This foundation also publishes all M1 certified products and their manufacturers/dealers on its website.

"We are very happy about the M1 approval enabling us to now offer a further label of internationality," Daniel Tigges, head of eco-INSTITUT marketing, says.

For M1 certification emission tests (incl. ammonia, formaldehydes and carcinogenes) and odour tests are performed on construction products. The period of time of testing is 28 days. The process of testing and the testing criteria are defined by the Committee Indoor Air Classification (EPT 24) - determined by the president of the Building Information Foundation RTS - and can be found on its webpage www.rakennustieto.fi.
