¹Any VOC not listed must produce an air concentration level no greater than 1/100 the Threshold Limit Value (TLV) industrial work place criterion
(Reference: American Conference of Government Industrial Hygienists, 6500 Glenway, Building D-7, Cincinnati, Ohio 45211-4438) and no greater
than 1/2 the CA Chronic Reference Exposure Level (CREL) http://www.oehha.ca.gov/air/chronic_rels/AllChrels.html - (CRELs) Adopted by the State of
California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA), December 2008).

³Defined to be the total response of measured VOCs falling within the C6–C16 range, with responses calibrated to a toluene surrogate.
ЇDefined to be the total response of a target list of aldehydes (2-butenal; acetaldehyde; benzaldehyde; 2, 5-dimethylbenzaldehyde,
2-methylbenzaldehyde; 3-and/or 4-methylbenzaldehyde; butanal; 3-methylbutanal; formaldehyde; hexanal; pentanal; propanal), with each
individually calibrated to a compound specific standard.
ЈTotal phthalates include dibutyl (DBP), diethylhexyl (DEHP), diethyl (DEP), butylbenzyl (BBP), di-octyl (DOP), and dimethyl (DMP) phthalates.
ЉParticles are only applicable to fibrous, particle-releasing products with exposed surface area in air streams.
Seating, Workstations and Casegood Systems complies with ANSI/BIFMA e3-2010 Credit 7.6.2.
Complies with California Department of Health Services' “Standard Method for the Testing and Evaluation of Volatile Organic Chemical Emissions
from Indoor Sources Using Environmental Chambers” Version 1.1 (CA section 01350)
GREENGUARD Certification affirms that products meet the criteria of the referenced standard and the requirements of the
specific certification program. Certification testing is conducted according to a consistent, defined protocol. The testing does not
evaluate emissions under usage conditions other than those defined in the protocol and does not address potential
environmental impact other than chemical and particle emissions.
The GREENGUARD Environmental Institute (GEI) is an industry independent, third-party certification organization that qualifies
products for low chemical emissions. GREENGUARD Certification programs use defined product standards, test
methodologies, product sample collection and handling procedures, program application processes and on-going verification
procedures. GREENGUARD standards, methods, and procedures are available at www.GREENGUARD.org.
