In order to get uniformity for the determination and verification of test results for photocatalytic construction materials, it is essential to define performance-based attributes and test methods. This chapter summarizes the current state-of-the-art on the existing standards, and shows an example for a performance-based procedure which covers the removal of nitric oxides (NOx).
