Is Blum hardware LBC compliant or free of Red List components?

I can find no information on this online and Blum seems to be vague about it also.  Any assistance would be appreciated.

We heard back from the Living Future Institute, here is what they said - 

The Red List is a list of substances that are generally not accepted in products used in projects pursuing the Living Building Challenge. Companies register their products with our materials transparency program, Declare, which they use to disclose any Red List ingredients in their products.

Blum Hardware does not have any Declare Labels, at least not under that brand name. It's possible they have labels under a different brand name if you have any that you would like me to check. Let me know if this is the answer you were looking for. declare.support@living-future.org
