The FEMB “level” certification programme follows the experience gained by BIFMA in North America and proceeds along a similar path to provide a voluntary certification scheme for office furniture manufacturers. FEMB level is a pan-European certification scheme designed to deliver the most open and transparent means of evaluating and communicating the environmental and social impacts of furniture products in the built environment.
Products eligible for FEMB level® certification include all office and non-domestic indoor furniture products.
Qualification for level® certification under the FEMB Furniture Sustainability Requirements includes conformance to criteria under four specific categories.
Points earned under each of these categories determine the level of certification earned:
Certification to FEMB level® attests that the product, the manufacturing facility, and the company responsible for the product brand, have been evaluated by an accredited third-party certification body against the multi-attribute criteria of the FEMB Sustainability requirements for office and non-domestic furniture for indoor use.
