Europur was represented as an observer organisation. As regards the criteria for polyurethane foam, the Joint Research Centre is proposing to take over the same criteria and test methods as those used in CertiPUR. They are thus deemed to be very satisfactory by our industry. Some chapters other than those relating to PU foam are relatively less advanced or subject to more discussion. It will thus take a few more months until the whole set of criteria for furniture are finalised.
