Hence, this standard seeks to minimise the end-use phase’s impact through rewarding products that use less material, maximise recyclability, minimise hazardous ingredients/contaminants, and use environmentally preferable materials sourcing.

• Particle boards;
• Edge glued panels;
• Fibre boards;
• Plasterboard or gypsum board;
