NSF/ANSI 332: Sustainability Assessment for Resilient Floor Coverings is the foremost standard by which to evaluate and certify sustainability of resilient flooring products across their entire product life cycle. NSF/ANSI 332 was developed by the NSF National Center for Sustainability Standards (NCSS) through a consensus-based public process with a multi-stakeholder group of manufacturers, suppliers, regulatory agencies, academicians and other industry participants. The standard communicates thorough information that is verifiable, science-based and credible about environmental and social aspects associated with the production and use of resilient floor coverings. Based on a life cycle assessment approach, NSF/ANSI 332 employs a point system to evaluate resilient flooring against established prerequisite requirements, performance criteria and quantifiable metrics in six key areas: Product design, Product manufacturing, Long-term value, End-of-life management, Corporate governance and Innovation. Total points determine certification at a Conformant, Silver, Gold or Platinum level.
