NSF/ANSI 332 is a voluntary, multi-attribute standard that evaluates the environmental and social impacts of resilient flooring products. Manufacturers can build on their FloorScore certification and meet their sustainability goals while also contributing to LEED v4 credits as well as meeting EPA ecolabel and GSA procurement requirements.
Products eligible for certification include, but are not limited to: vinyl tile, vinyl composition tile, sheet vinyl, rubber, polymeric, laminate and linoleum flooring products in which the wearing surface is non-textile.
