Indoor Air Comfort Gold; the difference between this and other certifications

The Eurofins Indoor Air Comfort product certification is a well-established way to demonstrate compliance with low VOC emission criteria set in Europe on two levels:

Standard level – Indoor Air Comfort certified product

With this label, all European regulations concerning VOC emissions from products into indoor air are combined under the same umbrella. Any product labelled with Indoor Air Comfort will comply with all European regulations according to the limit values.

Higher level – Indoor Air Comfort Gold certified product

This label combines all relevant European regulations and most voluntary labels on VOC emissions by combining the most stringent requirements in every EU country. As a result, Indoor Air Comfort Gold is the most ambitious low-emitting label in Europe, and certified products have the least amount of harmful emissions.



The advantages of Indoor Air Comfort Gold-certified products

Indoor Air Comfort Gold-certified products are directly accepted as proof from LEED and BREEAM international programs. Likewise, it means products are always tested against the latest requirements, so they are always current, and you can ensure they do not pose a health risk to your customers either.

How does the certification work?

Certification for Indoor Air Comfort and Indoor Air Comfort Gold goes beyond a simple one-time test. As part of the program, FILA’s manufacturing plant will be continuously audited, re-tested, and certified to ensure the continuous production of low-emitting products and the same level of compliance with respect to VOC emissions.



What FILA products are certified?

At FILA, our products have received this esteemed recognition because they comply with the strictest European and international criteria regarding VOCs. The accolade wouldn’t be possible, however, without a lot of hard work, and our Research and Development team has spent countless hours sourcing the right raw ingredients, a process that can take months. As well as placing emphasis on VOCs, the certification also considers other factors like the additional substances present in the product formulas of construction materials. Since all components are covered, we have a list of ingredients to avoid for a product to be considered the Indoor Air Comfort Gold standard.

The certification confirms that the following products have been produced in a green way:

MP90 ECO XTREMEthis stainproof sealer offers superior stain protection for porcelain tiles, natural stone, marble and granite in polished, brushed, or matt finishes.

WET ECO – this colour-enhancing protector and anti-dirt product provides an attractive wet-effect finish for unpolished natural stone surfaces, unpolished agglomerates, and terracotta.

PW10 suitable for application on the back of absorbent stones, this sealer effectively blocks efflorescence.

The certificate is valid for 5 years as long as annual inspections and VOC testing are performed. In case of changes to a product, the certificate can be updated.
