Standard Practice for Preparing an Occupant Exposure Screening Report (OESR) for Substances in Installed Building Products
|Publication Date:||1 January 2020|
This practice provides the information required for publishing a screening report for occupant exposure from substances in installed building products (OESR) to communicate possible human health impacts in an occupied building to product specifiers, building owners, and others.
This practice is applicable to all interior and exterior building products in the form used and incorporated into an occupied building.
An article going into the construction market that has potential hazards based upon an evaluation of the United Nations Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS) (1)2 mixtures guidance is included in the scope of this practice.
This practice does not cover product fabrication or installation processes because these are subject to worker safety and health regulations and law.
The final building product manufacturer offering the building product to the market or agent is responsible for providing this information and completing this report.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
