A German organization registered under the legal entity of “GmbH,” Eco-INSTITUT offers testing criteria and equipment for:
- Construction materials and floor coverings
- Mattresses and bedding goods
- Furniture and furnishings
To qualify for this label, brands must provide a full list of the materials used in the product. The product is then tested in a special chamber for a period between 24 hours and 7 days—depending on the substance being tested—and a report produced that outlines the emissions over time and whether or not the product qualifies for the label.
