Where Can I Find Emissions and Safety Certificates for Laminate Flooring?

Dear Bob and Betsy,
After recent reports about Lumber Liquidators safety concerns, I’m worried about the formaldehyde emissions in some laminate flooring. I know not all laminate is dangerous though! Where can I find the emissions and safety certificates for laminate flooring? I’d like to see these before I buy.
