GREEN LABEL +PLUS PROGRAM

 

CRI Green Label +Plus Program logoThe Carpet Cushion Council is the administrator of The Carpet & Rug Institute (CRI) Green Label Plus (GLP) program for cushion. Firms desiring to qualify products under the program must complete and execute a CRI Green Label Plus Participation Agreement provided by the Carpet Cushion Council and satisfy other pre-enrollment requirements.

Applicants submit product samples for testing of Total Volatile Organic Compounds (TVOCs), emissions of the 35 chemicals listed in CDPH 01350 and an additional two mandatory VOCs (i.e. Butylated Hydroxytoluene (BHT) and 4-Phenylcyclohexene (4-PCH)). These emissions are measured against prescribed limits after 14 days under ASTM Method D 5116. Product testing is performed by an independent testing laboratory approved under the program. The program is accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). GLP certification qualifies the product for US Green Building Council (USGBC) credits under Leadership in Environmental Engineering and Design (LEED) version 4.

Upon successful initial testing, a product label ID number (assigned by CRI) is issued to the applicant. The participant is permitted to use the CRI Green Label Plus program logo on the approved product category in conformity with the CRI GLP Brand Standards. The label can be used in product literature, on hang tags and sample backs, etc. Use of the label is not allowed until the product is certified by the program. Participants in the program are informed of the results of tests by means of a written report from the Carpet Cushion Council indicating whether the tested sample meets the program limits.

Following acceptance in the GLP program, the Carpet Cushion Council annually collects a sample of the approved product category for assessment of TVOCs and for each of the mandatory VOC's. All samples are collected using the CRI sample collection protocol and are assessed by the program approved laboratory. Specific details related to the CRI Green Label Plus program requirements can be found on the CRI website. (Link to: www.carpet-rug.org/GLP)

Participation in the CRI Green Label Plus program for cushion is open to and includes both members of the Carpet Cushion Council and non-members.
