||The paper discusses a cooperative effort between EPA and RTI to develop and manage an emissions testing and verification program for certain products used indoors. The effort is part of EPA's Environmental Technology Verification (ETV) program. Building on existing test methods, RTI is developing a harmonized test protocol with participation from stakeholders for office furniture as the first industry sector program. The protocol will be validated in laboratories at RTI and Air Quality Sciences and then will be submitted for approval by a stakeholder group representing buyers and users of technology, developers and vendors, and technology enablers. Testing results will be provided to clients, but will also be incorporated in a database of industry-specific statistical averages that may be used for modeling pollutant concentrations within a building. As part of the protocol development process, RTI is using an indoor air quality, outcome-oriented framework to guide discussion of possible outputs from the testing. The stakeholder group is discussing parameters for the testing protocol.
