The FEMB standard has been officially adopted by European Accreditation (EA)

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. After extensive examination by all of its European members, the European co-operation for Accreditation (EA) agreed with the findings of DAkkS and endorsed the adoption. Now it is possible for this certification body to start its own accreditation processes in line with the standard. The first LEVEL certificates based on the standard are expected to be issued in summer 2018.
