A huge number of products of Forbo Eurocol Germany meet the requirements of EMICODE EC 1 - EMICODE EC 1R - EMICODE EC 1 Plus - EMICODE EC 1 Plus R, the ecological standard „Blauer Engel“ (Blue Angel), the label of building approval and sustainability and the certification of IMO (International Maritime Organization).
Forbo Eurocol Germany meets the safety and environmental requirements of ISO 9001.
EMICODE is a trademark protected eco-label used for classification of low-emission installation products and construction products. This label for hygiene of environment and interior rooms
is awarded since 1997 by GEV (Gemeinschaft Emissionskontrollierte Verlegewerkstoffe, Klebstoffe und Bauprodukte e. V.) to products of manufacturers, who are subject of strict quality controls and regular reviews.
Products and services awarded with the Blue Angel are more eco-friendly than comparable conventional products and services.
The European bulding product regulation describes the requirements concerning hygiene, health and environmental protection. These requirements have been clearly defined by the German Institute for construction technology (DIBt) in their principles for the health evaluation of construction products especially concerning emissions.
Therefore construction products need a so called „Ü-Zeichen“ due to health reasons based on a general building approval (abZ).
