If, 3 days after being loaded into the test chamber, a textile floor covering meets the criteria listed (termination criteria), the chamber test may be terminated because it is guaranteed that in such a case also the 28-day criteria will be complied with.

  • The test is deemed to have been passed if the product meets the 3-day termination criteria.

If a textile floor covering does not meet the 3-day termination criteria and the 3-day TVOC value does not amount to more than 500 μg/m3, the test may also be terminated after 7 days if the following conditions are met.

  • TVOC < 210 μg/m³
  • SVOC < 30 μg/m³
  • VOC without LCI < 85μg/m³
  • R <1,0
  • Formaldehyde < 10 μg/m³
  • carcinogenic compounds: not identifiable.


For all other compounds listed, the concentration determined must not exceed 75% of the required 3-day value.

  • The test is deemed to have been passed if the product meets the 7-day termination criteria.

If these values are not met either, a renewed test cannot be conducted until after 28 days.

  • The test is deemed to have been passed if the product meets the 28-day termination criteria.
