After July 1, 2013, carpet sellers may only sell carpet or carpet cushion that complies with New York City laws for volatile organic compound (“VOC”) emission limits. Carpet installers and building owners and occupants may only install carpet or carpet cushion that is VOC compliant in any building.
Upon customer request, a carpet business must provide manufacturer’s information showing VOC compliance if this information is not available on carpet or carpet cushion label. Call 311 if the carpet seller or installer does not give you this information. Keep your receipt to help track product information.
