The paper addresses several issues that should be considered before the 1995-scheduled revision of the ASTM Standard Guide for Small-Scale Environmental Chamber Determinations of Organic Emissions from Indoor Materials/Products (D 5116), that was first published in 1990. Since its publication, a substantial amount of information has been gained about emissions processes that may affect the implementation of the test method. The 1995 revision will be an opportunity to incorporate a constant evaporative source. When the air velocity increased from <3 to 46 cm/s, the emission rate increased by a factor of three. Given the importance of this parameter, its measurement should be standardized.
