Checking against BS EN 13300:2001

BS EN 13300:2001 is used to classify paint types which then allows the appropriate VOCΒ content limit to be identified in Decorative Paint Directive 2004/42/CE (Phase 2). The product supplier will need to confirm the paint type according to BS EN 13300. You can then refer to Decorative Paint Directive 2004/42/CE (Phase 2) to check that the correct VOC content limit has been complied with.
