The FloorScore program, developed by the Resilient Floor Covering Institute (RFCI) in conjunction with Scientific Certification Systems (SCS), tests and certifies resilient flooring products for compliance with the volatile organic compound emissions criteria of the California Section 01350 program. Floors bearing the FloorScore seal are recognized as contributing to good indoor air quality in order to protect human health.
FloorScore® provides third-party certification that products are tested and comply with the California Department of Public Health (CDPH v1.1) Standard Method for Testing and Evaluating Volatile Organic Chemical (VOC) Emissions. As part of FloorScore certification, manufacturing processes, supply chain, and chemical sources are also verified and audited.
FloorScore® certified flooring products contribute to Low Emitting Material credits under The U.S. Green Building Council’s (USGBC) LEED rating systems, Green Globes and the Collaborative for High Performance Schools (CHPS), a measurable standard set for educational facilities.
