The European Federation of Office Furniture (FEMB) starts public consultation on FEMB Sustainability Standard and LEVEL certificate for its first revision
In recent months more companies have certified products to European level.
Six manufacturers have passed product certification for 110 products.
Sooner than expected by the project management, the FEMB sustainability standard and the LEVEL certificate have been acknowledged by leading certification bodies of the sustainability and furniture sector.
The Spanish company Tecnalia has received its official documents from ENAC.
VS Vereinigte Spezialmöbelfabriken GmbH & Co. KG in Tauberbischofsheim, Germany, is the first company to receive European LEVEL certificates for a wide range of products.
TÜV Rheinland LGA Products (TRLP) is ready to begin certification.
The comprehensive FEMB standard has been checked against the latest requirements for the public sector from the perspective of a circular economy.
The FEMB sustainability requirements for office and non-domestic furniture for indoor use (the FEMB standard) were officially adopted today by Deutsche Akkreditierungsstelle (DAkkS), which took the lead as the home accreditation body for assessments in line with the standard.
