The certification mark applies to furniture which is tested for critical chemical compounds.
The certification mark is based on EU Directives (REACH Regulation for the registration, evaluation, authorisation and restriction of chemicals, testing for substances of very high concerns (SVHC), PAH Directive regarding the testing and evaluation for polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons etc.), Toy Safety Directive, Chemical Prohibition Ordinance, Hazardous Substances Ordinance, the German Food and Feed Code and the Product Safety Act. All materials used in the item of furniture are analysed for their properties and for compliance with legal requirements, regulations and EU Directives. Within the scope of testing, the entire item of furniture is first analysed in a test chamber under controlled conditions for possible emission of chemical compounds into the Environment.
Subsequently, chemical analyses for further substances that cannot be identified in the test chamber will be conducted. These analyses depend on the material and type of use of the item. The scope of testing depends on the intended use of the item of furniture.
