Have we banned VOC’s from our paint yet?

    Unfortunately, no VOCs are not banned from paint.  Making things worse is zero or low VOC labels can be misleading.  Certification labels by third parties, such as Green Seal and Greenguard, do not take into account tinting, which can significantly raise VOC levels.  There are regulations in place, but for now, do a little extra research on the paint.

    Nope.  According to the EPA, there is no regulation for VOC in non-industrial buildings.  Formaldehyde seems to be the only one regulated, and is allowed to be up to .75ppm (permissible exposure level); however, the EPA recommends that steps be taken to reduce exposure one it reached .1ppm.  Here is a list of products which could possibly contain VOC.
