Organization: ASTM
Publication Date: 10 September 1997
Status: inactive
Page Count: 4
ICS Code (Other standards related to air quality): 13.040.99
scope:

This practice covers the procedures for estimation of short-term human inhalation exposure to volatile organic chemicals (VOCs) emitted from bedding sets when a new bedding set is first brought into a house.

The estimated exposure is based on an estimated emission profile of VOCs from bedding sets.

The VOC emission from bedding sets, as in the case of other household furnishings, usually are highest when the products are new. Procedures described in this practice also are applicable to used bedding sets.

Exposure to airborne VOC emissions in a residence is estimated for a household member, based on location and activity patterns.

The estimated exposure may be used for characterization of health risks that could result from short-term exposures to VOC emissions.

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 and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to its use.
