Updated criteria November 1, 2021
Möbelfakta reflects the demands of the outside world with a complete and updated reference and labeling system. The system is based on three requirement areas: quality, environment and responsible supply chains with regard to social, environmental and ethical responsibility.
Möbelfakta's board is responsible for the content of Möbelfakta. The Criteria Council develops the criteria in accordance with the standard ISO 14024, which means that the products meet environmental requirements set by an independent third party, that the requirements are continuously tightened and that they are developed from a life cycle perspective.
The company must be able to present a comprehensive documentation that proves that the criteria in Möbelfakta's requirements are followed. Full transparency is expected from the company regarding how the content of the requirements specification is complied with. Compliance checks are performed at both companies and their suppliers. In the event that a company or its supplier violates the requirements, corrective measures must be taken.
A corrective measure means that a furniture manufacturer ensures that its own company, or supplier, rectifies the deviation as quickly as possible.
Information about the latest revision
Möbelfakta's criteria are continuously revised to ensure that they meet the requirements set in national public procurement.

The transition period for the new requirements is until 1 May 2022. Until then, all furniture manufacturers must have ensured that their declared products meet the new requirements.
