The paper discusses environmental technology verification (ETV) for indoor air products. RTI is establishing test protocols for products that fit into three categories: those that have reduced emissions because of pollution prevention efforts, those that control contamination, and those that provide instrumentation for indoor environment measurements. Stakeholder groups of industry, government, and other interested organizations provide input and review the protocols. Industry requested multiple test laboratories; therefore, RTI developed a laboratory proficiency program. The testing framework is available to private trade associations and testing laboratories as a basis for establishing their own programs. The initial programs looked at emissions from commercial furniture and contamination control efficiency from general ventilation air filters and electronic air cleaners.
