Europur: European Foam Industry Safety Label

Following the success in Europe of the CertiPUR safety, health and environment (SHE) standard for polyurethane foam introduced by European Association of Flexible Polyurethane Foam Blocks Manufacturers (Europur) in 2005, the US foam association, the Polyurethane Foam Association (PFA) has announced the launch of its own label – CertiPUR-US – for early 2008.

Since its introduction over two years ago at the Milan Furniture Fair, the European CertiPUR scheme has attracted 30 foam manufacturers, with several more in the pipeline. Companies across Europe have become accredited under the scheme and the label has become recognized by furniture producers as representing responsible production and consumer safety.

The flexible polyurethane foams covered by the CertiPUR scheme are used for bedding and in upholstered furniture, for example car seats, furniture, and mattresses. The CertiPUR application process is rigorous with testing carried out by accredited independent laboratories.

Europur also launched its new website, with an in-depth section on CertiPUR.
