SCS Indoor Advantage(TM) Gold certification requires that products meet the toughest limits in North America for indoor air emissions, guaranteeing that certified products contribute to safer and healthier indoor environments in commercial buildings such as offices, hospitals and schools. SCSs Indoor Advantage(TM) Gold ensures full compliance with California Section 01350 requirements and sets a higher standard for indoor air quality, stricter than any other on the market. Importantly, SCS Formaldehyde Free certification is applicable to JM Formaldehyde-free(TM)fiber glass building insulation products for both commercial and residential applications, enabling homeowners, retailers, contractors, architects and specifiers to be confident in selecting certified products from JMs complete line of Formaldehyde-free(TM)fiber glass building insulation. It is the only independent third-party certification for claims related to formaldehyde-free building materials. SCS developed the formaldehyde-free certification based on both health criteria and the definition of formaldehyde-free that was issued in 2005 when a formal challenge was filed against JMs ability to call its products formaldehyde-free. Unlike other product emissions certification programs, the SCS program criteria are entirely transparent and open to all manufacturers whose products meet the criteria. Were delighted weve earned the SCS Indoor Advantage(TM) Gold + Formaldehyde Free certification, said Mike Lawrence, vice president and general manager for JMs Insulation Systems business. JM was the first manufacturer to offer a full line of Formaldehyde-free(TM)fiber glass building insulation beginning in 2002. By helping people follow EPAs recommendation to minimize exposure to formaldehyde, we have been making homes, schools, hospitals and other buildings safer and healthier for the past eight years.
