For a project outside the U.S. would products (adhesives, sealants, paints and coating) meeting the European Decopaint Directive (2004/42/EC) qualify for the credit? Or do products meeting the referenced standard have to meet the General Emissions Evaluation, as well? If yes, would an alternative compliance method be acceptable, especially in markets which cannot provide such products? Please note that such products (with low VOC) have been compliant with the LEED v2009 requirements. However, it is not clear whether a product could qualify either for its VOC content or its General Emissions Evaluation or both. Apparently, shouldn't a product complying with the VOC content requirements qualify for the credit? Please advise, as the LEED v4 description of requirements seems quite complicated.
