The Label

In order to be awarded the EMICODE® label, manufacturers need to submit their products to extensive testing at recognized institutions. Based on the scientifically determinated measurement data, EMICODE® categorises flooring installation materials, adhesives and building products into three emission classes.


Only materials complying with the strict emission requirements shall be awarded the EMICODE® label. Manufacturers undertake to produce these materials according to high quality safety standards and under strict monitoring in order to fulfil the EMICODE® requirements at any time.


To ensure maximum reliability of the emission claims for the materials, the products are regularly submitted to random sampling checks by independent, internationally recognized testing institutes.



Currently, the label is available in 20 languages. In case you require further versions, do not hesitate to contact us!
