The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) has approved the publication of the ANSI/GREENGUARD Environmental Institute Mold and Moisture Management Standard for New Construction (ANSI/GEI MMS1001). The standard details design, construction and maintenance practices for preventing the growth of mold in new buildings.

“We are very excited to bring such a valuable resource to the building industry,” said Henning Bloech, exec director of GEI. “With mold and moisture issues negatively impacting so many buildings and building occupants, we recognized a need for a consensus-developed standard to address this devastating problem.”  

An electronic or hard copy version of the standard is available for $100, or $300 for a multi-use electronic copy, at www.greenguard.org.
