In the following, we would like to inform you about the meaning of the different testing and quality accreditations, labels and other key information frequently mentioned on our materials or that can be found on our product data sheets.
Topics such as harmful substances or emissions are very important for both the user and the occupants. Relevant emission accreditations like the EMICODE or the Blue Angel certification is proof of fulfilling stringent requirements.
To facilitate and document the sustainability of entire buildings, a number of building certification systems have been established in the past several years, such as DGNB, LEED, and BREEAM. Here it’s important to know that the individual products are not certified, but rather the building as a whole. Building products must fulfil certain criteria in order to be used in these green buildings.
Environmental product declarations (EPD), sustainability data sheets, and the UZIN Ecoline range offer information related to sustainability and emissions, and can also serve as proof in certification.
