New versions of AgBB- acceptable for showing compliance?

NC-v4 EQc2: Low-emitting materials
posted by Reinhard Oppl on Feb 2, 2016, 5:33 am

Hello Reinhard, have you received any more information on this issue? / Sara Log in or register to post comments 0 Vote up!

Obviously US GBC staff and EQ TAG consider issuing an addendum or other clarification that newer versions of both CDPH and of AgBB are acceptable. But I did not yet see such a publication yet.
