Following a four-year review by resilient flooring makers on the importance of instituting a program that measures a product's air quality, The Resilient Floor Covering Institute (RFCI) has launched FloorScore. The voluntary program certifies flooring products that meet exacting indoor air quality (IAQ) standards.

Products are certified through Scientific Certification Systems Inc., which reviews volatile organic compounds (VOC) emission reports, monitors production processes and even conducts site audits of manufacturing plants. Products certified through FloorScore will be listed at www.rfci.com.
