Product choice for floor and walla coverings made of PVC containing DINP/DIDP

Within the Swedish building sector, there are several voluntary assessment systems which aim to phase out hazardous substances from building and construction products. These include BASTA, Byggvarubedömningen and Sunda Hus. There are, however, still occasions when products not approved in these systems need to be used. In addition, there is a growing interest in using recycled materials which may contain substances not approved by the assessment systems. There is thus a need for knowledge and support regarding how to motivate and manage deviations from requirements set up by the voluntary systems in connection to product choices that involve building products which do not meet the requirements but which are considered to be irreplaceable.
