Building material emission classification M1

Building materials for indoor use, such as paint, can be classified according to their emission levels. FISIAQ, the Finnish Society of Indoor Air Quality and Climate, has classified building material into three groups.

The emission classification of building materials has three emission classes. Emission class M1 corresponds to the best quality and emission class M3 includes materials with the highest emission rates. M1 classified materials fulfill the strict criteria at the age of 4 weeks.

M1 certification is granted by Building Information Foundation RTS sr, to products that have been tested in an independent and impartial laboratory and fulfills the specified criteria. Materials are tested for volatile organic compounds, LCI-compounds, formaldehyde, ammonia, and carcinogenic substances. A small untrained panel also evaluates the product’s odor acceptability. All testing is carried out four weeks after application.
