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 European members, the European Association (EA) agreed with the findings of DAkkS and endorsed accreditation. Now it is possible for certification body to start their own accreditation against the standard. The first level certificates based on the standard are expected for summer 2018.
