SCS Global Services And TUV Rheinland Hong Kong Partner On Indoor Air Quality Laboratory Testing

EMERYVILLE, Calif., Oct. 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- SCS Global Services has announced a new partnership with TUV Rheinland's Hong Kong laboratory, which will allow the companies to conduct rapid indoor air quality testing for manufacturers in Asia. SCS offers indoor air quality certification for furniture, flooring, paints and coatings, adhesives, sealants, insulation, wall coverings, carpet, furnishings and more through its FloorScore®, Indoor Advantage™ and Indoor Advantage™ Gold programs.


"Our indoor air quality certifications allow our certified clients to prove that their products contribute to creating a safer, healthier indoor environment for their customers," said Stan Rhodes, CEO of SCS Global Services. "This partnership will allow us to better serve manufacturers in Asia with faster turnaround time and a connection to local businesses."

Companies that earn FloorScore, Indoor Advantage and Indoor Advantage Gold are qualified to use the SCS certification mark to promote their products. These certifications can also contribute to Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) credits for low-emitting materials and help companies comply with furniture and building product emissions standards, including ANSI/BIFMA X7.1/M7.1 and CA 01350.

"Having been based in China for more than 20 years, TUV Rheinland is familiar with domestic and overseas standards of product safety and quality management systems, is equipped with advanced testing equipment and experienced technical professionals, and is capable of integrating international resources and local services," said Dr. Wanessa Russeau, Department Manager of TUV Rheinland's Emission Center.

TUV Rheinland Hong Kong joins Berkeley Analytical Associates in California, Material Analytical Systems (MAS) in Georgia, Eurofins Product Testing in Denmark and as SCS' partners in laboratory testing for indoor air quality.

SCS Global Services (formerly Scientific Certification Systems) has been providing global leadership in third-party environmental and sustainability certification, auditing, testing, and standards development for nearly 30 years.
