Finnish emissions label for construction products and furniture
The Finnish emission label for building products and furniture is one of the leading quality labels in
the Scandinavian region. In 1995, the Finnish Society of Indoor Air Quality and Climate (FiSIAQ) developed
the first version of the label and awarded it to products for the first time in 1996.
Today’s certification body is the non-profit Building Information foundation RTS sr, which issues the label
in three categories – M1, M2 and M3 (M1 is the best category and stands for “low-pollutant”). For upholstered
office chairs, there is only the M1 category. Special rules apply to wood, glass, metal, stone and ceramic products
which are specified in the document “Classification of Indoor Environment 2018”.
