SCS Indoor Advantage
Categories: Product Certifications
Description: In 2004, SCS began its indoor air quality performance initiative, and has since certified hundreds of products. Indoor Advantage™ and Indoor Advantage™ Gold certifications both conform to the requirements of the SCS EC-10.2-2007 Indoor Air Quality Standard, publicly available on the SCS website in the Indoor Air Quality Standards and References Section. The VOC criteria for the Indoor Advantage certification are based on emission criteria established in the Business and Institutional Furniture Manufacturer’s Association (BIFMA) Standard for Low-Emitting Office Furniture Systems and Seating (ANSI/BIFMA X7.1) and the US Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design criteria EQ4.5 (furniture and seating). SCS Indoor Advantage certification may be used to inspire confidence in architects, consumers, manufacturers, regulators, suppliers and more that your certified products consistently meet rigorous indoor air quality emissions requirements.
Environmental Characteristics: Scientific Certification Systems created its first indoor air quality standard, SCS-EC10, in 2004. The EC10 standard closely adhered to the requirements of the California Collaborative of High Performance Schools (CHPS) and to California Special Environmental Requirements Specification 01350. Many of the requirements of the International Organization of Standards (ISO) 9001-2000 Quality Management Systems for Process and Quality Control were also incorporated into the EC-10 Standard.
