As a public outreach activity of the Carpet Policy Dialogue, the report summarizes the considerations, deliberations, accomplishments, conclusions, and recommendations reached by the Carpet Policy Dialogue during the Dialogue year (August 21, 1990 through September 27, 1991). The Compendium is an assembly of materials from the Carpet Policy Dialogue Plenary Group, and the Product Testing, Processing Engineering, and Public Communications Subgroups. The document contains background information about the EPA charge to the Dialogue to encourage voluntary product testing for total volatile organic compounds (TVOC) that emit from new carpet floor covering materials. The report describes the dialogue process, structural organization, and explains the nature of consensus and voluntary actions. It summarizes the activities and products of the three working subgroups, describes manufacturing processes for carpet floor covering and insulation materials, lists accomplishments attributed to the Carpet Policy Dialogue and other activities related to the EPA charge. The report contains eighteen (18) appendices that list Dialogue participants, describes a standardized analytical test method to obtain TVOC emissions measurements from carpet products, documents three consensus agreements, four Memoranda of Understanding, and the text of a public information brochure. The appendices also provide informative materials relevant to carpet product testing for TVOC emissions and carpet installation practices.
