A new draft version of GECA’s standard for panel boards is now available for public comment! This standard seeks to define good environmental and social performance benchmarks for panel boards throughout their entire lifecycle.
The Panel Boards (PBv3.0-2020) standard applies to a range of panel board products used for interior fit-out applications such as interior panelling and as a component of furniture. This includes:
Edge glued panels
Plasterboard or gypsum board
Boards made from plastics and other polymers, textile fibres, metals, glass, mineral fibre, fibreglass, engineered timber and natural fibre products
GECA welcomes comments on the standard from the public and industry professionals until 12 February 2021. A draft copy of the standard is available here. Please submit comments and feedback to email@example.com or +61 (2) 9699 2850.
