Corrosionpedia explains VOC-Compliant
Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are substances that are a key reactant in the formation of atmospheric smog and ozone. Volatile organic compounds react with nitrogen oxides in the presence of sunlight to form smog, which is a toxic environmental hazard.
Governments have created regulations regarding what quantity of VOCs are permitted when using products that release VOCs. Products that meet the regulations are considered to be compliant.
