In order to better reflect the range of furniture products on the market, the state of the art for these products and to take into account the innovation of the last few years, it is appropriate to extend the scope of the product group to include non-wooden furniture and to establish a revised set of ecological criteria. The revised ecological criteria aim at using materials produced in a more sustainable way considering a life cycle analysis approachlimiting the use of hazardous compounds, the levels of hazardous residues, the contribution of furniture to indoor air pollution and promoting a durable and high-quality product that is easy to repair and disassemble.
The revised criteria, along with the related assessment and verification requirements should be valid for six years from the date of adoption of this Decision, taking into account the innovation cycle for this product group. The scope extends to domestic furniture and contract furniture items for use in domestic or non-domestic environments. Bed frames, legs, bases and headboards are included in the scope.
Products whose primary function is not to be used as per paragraph 1, including streetlights, railings and fences, ladders, clocks, playground equipment, stand-alone or wall-hung mirrors, electrical conduits, road bollards and building products such as steps, doors, windows, floor coverings and cladding. The strands in the external layer are aligned and parallel to the board length or width. The strands in the internal layer or layers can be randomly orientated or aligned, generally at right angles to the strands in the external layers.
Many different sub-categories of plywood can be referred to based on how the plywood is structured such as, veneer plywood, core plywood, balanced plywood or its predominant end use for instance, marine plywood. Methods may include the application of paints, prints, varnishes, veneers, laminates, impregnated papers and finishing foils.
Supplied timber may be considered as a component material but be later sawn and treated to be converted into a component part. Applications shall be evaluated in accordance with the criteria on which they are based.
The specific assessment and verification requirements are indicated within each criterion. Competent bodies shall preferentially recognise attestations which are issued by bodies accredited according to the relevant harmonised standard for testing and calibration laboratories and verifications by bodies bti are accredited according to the relevant harmonised standard for bodies certifying products, processes and services.
Where appropriate, test methods other than those indicated for each criterion may be used if the competent body assessing the application accepts their equivalence.
Where appropriate, competent bodies may require supporting documentation and may carry out independent verifications. As a pre-requisite, the product must meet all respective legal requirements of the country countries in which 579-2 product is intended to be placed on the market. The applicant shall declare the product’s compliance with this requirement.
