Third-party product certifier Green Seal is seeking stakeholder input on its proposed Environmental Leadership Standard for Architectural Insulation Materials (GS-54).

Product manufacturers, facility managers, construction companies, consumer and environmental groups, and other interested parties are encouraged to submit feedback. To submit comments, parties must register as stakeholders.

The public comment period will remain open until March 31.

The scope of the standard includes products made from polyurethane, fiberglass and other materials that provide thermal resistance.

The standard aims to help purchasers identify and choose insulation products that are environmentally preferable, and to guide manufacturers in the design of these products, according to Green Seal. The standard will also be the basis for determining which products in this category it will certify.

The standard will further establish requirements for performance and protection of health and the environment.

All feedback received during the open comment period will be reviewed and considered for the final version of the standard, to be released in the subsequent weeks.

The non-profit organization says it will publish responses to all comments on its website.
