The GREENGUARD Environmental Institute (GEI) has teamed up with TÜV Rheinland LGA of Germany as a technical partner for GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality certification in Europe. TÜV Rheinland LGA will offer product evaluation and manufacturing reviews as required by GREENGUARD certification.

“We are thrilled to partner with such an esteemed and quality-driven organization as TÜV Rheinland LGA,” said Henning Bloech, GEI’s Executive Director. “Very few laboratories worldwide are able to meet our standards. With Air Quality Sciences and now TÜV Rheinland LGA as GREENGUARD program technical partners, we are fortunate to work with two of the leading organizations in this field.”

LGA participates in third-party proficiency and round-robin testing with Air Quality Sciences, GEI’s long standing technical partner, to ensure comparable test results, data quality and analysis. In addition to demonstrated proficiency, GEI requires established quality programs such as ISO 17025 from its certification partners as well as established technical and scientific expertise.

“GREENGUARD Certification is becoming increasingly important in the markets we operate,” noted Michael Jungnitsch, managing director for TÜV Rheinland LGA. “Becoming a GREENGUARD program technical partner is a testament to the high quality standards under which TÜV Rheinland LGA operates. We are excited to work with GEI and help our customers create value through GREENGUARD certification.”
