What products are certified – and how you know?
Flooring products that meet the FloorScore® program requirements in effect at the time of certification can display the FloorScore® label.

Rigorous testing is the backbone of FloorScore®. Representative flooring samples are tested in strict accordance with the California Department of Health Services Standard Practice for the Testing of Volatile Organic Emissions from Various Sources Using Small-Scale Environmental Chambers (CA/DHS/EHLB/R-174). This government-developed practice outlines the requirements for sample collection, packaging and shipment, test specimen preparation and conditioning, chamber testing, chemical analysis, and test reporting.
Test results must comply with the requirements outlined in SCS-EC-10.2-2007 Environmental Certification Program - Indoor Air Quality Performance, which uses the emission concentrations for listed VOCs under the California Section 01350 program.
