The group, which governs the requirements which form Möbelfakta, is the technical committe of furniture - within TMF.
- The environmental requirements are based on criteria from the council of environmental control (Miljöstyrrådet); www.msr.se (the homepage of Miljöstyrningsrådet).
- The technical requirements are based on established standardizations for furniture; partly European standards (EN-standards) but also international standards (ISO-standards) - www.sis.se (homepage for standardizations).
- The requirements of social responsibility are based on ”The Global Compact”, ten principles of ethical enterprising which origin from United Nation´s ”Code of Conduct” - www.sweden.gov.se/sb/d/10894/a/109941 (the homepage of the Swedish government).
New methods for testing various furniture properties are constantly being developed. The EN- and ISO-standards, environment criteria as well as ethical guidelines which form the requirement specifications, will likewise show developmental change within the foreseeable future, a fact which explains the continual development of the Möbelfakta standard.
The technical committee within the furniture department of TMF, get together around five times a year to look over national & international standardizations as well as technical criteria for furniture.
The environment critieria – published on the homepage of Miljöstyrningsrådet – are also revised on a regular basis. Depending on the product as well as the legal/technical development it will take place with a variating frequency, though no later than three years after its latest publication or modification.
