Abstract: The technical and ecological criteria for EU Ecolabel furniture are presented together with supporting rationale and relevant stakeholder discussion. The scope for furniture products has been significantly expanded to now include non-wooden furniture. New criteria have been developed for wood, cork, bamboo, rattan, plastics, metals, textiles, leather, coated fabrics, polyurethane foams, latex foams and glass. Restrictions have also been introduced for the use of hazardous substances and mixtures during production processes. Emissions of formaldehyde and other VOCs are restricted by certain criteria where relevant to the furniture product. Criteria relating to the final furniture product have been set to ensure that products are easier to repair and dismantle into constituent materials at end-of-life.
