The PEFC (Pan European Forest Council) label for our blocks, squared timber, friezes and related products.
PEFC, the first forest certification body in France, was created in Paris in 1999. Since then, this institution has been a leader in sustainable forest management with nearly 2/3 of the world’s forest area certified. PEFC thus responds to the global challenges of preserving our forests at the heart of current debates.
PEFC in a few figures :
- Present in 53 countries around the world
- More than 330 million hectares certified worldwide
- 5.6 million hectares certified in mainland France
- 100% of the national forest
- 60% of the communal forest
- 20% of the private forest
Above all, this label provides the consumer with a guarantee that his product comes from a sustainably managed forest and enables him to support Filière bois responsable.
For many years, Industrie du Bois de Neuvy has favoured raw material supplies from sustainably managed forests.
PEFC-labelled since 2005. Industrie du Bois de Neuvy ensures the traceability of its products thanks to a chain of custody of our supplies, set up within the framework of this certification, which undoubtedly contributes to the preservation of natural resources and perpetuates our activity for future generations.
CE Marking (Conformity to Requirements) for our structural wood:
The general principles of the CE marking were set by the regulation (EC) No. 765/2008 of 9 July 2008. From now on, this marking is compulsory for all types of “New Legislative Framework” products covered by one or more European regulations. In order to use the ” CE ” marking on a product, it is necessary to carry out controls and tests that ensure the conformity of the product.
The marking is a document by which the manufacturer engages its responsibility and attests that its product is in conformity with the “essential health and safety requirements” of the European regulation that concerns the product.
As a reminder, no product subject to a regulation or directive as mentioned above can be placed on the European market without the “CE” mark.
Industrie du Bois de Neuvy, applies since 2011 the Construction Products Directive of 21 December 1988 aiming to ensure a high level of health and safety for users of construction products.
For solid structural timber, this directive sets requirements for mechanical strength, stability and safety. Our products are classified CE according to the NF B 52-001 standard.
