Eco-devis is the Swiss standard for the ecological specification of building products. Eco-devis examines materials and building
services of comparable functionality with regard to their environmental impact and designates these accordingly. It aims to
ensure the use of sustainable building materials in public buildings in Switzerland. Armstrong’s DLW Linoleum floor coverings and various homo- genenous DLW Vinyl coverings can be used to meet this requirement.
As stipulated in the EU REACH regulation (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals), as of 1 December
2008, only chemicals that have been pre-registered in advance at the newly created European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) in Helsinki
may be circulated in the EU countries. In our own interests and to ensure a high degree of product safety, Armstrong is also
intensively working with the implementation of REACH and the consequent requirements. As such, we have also requested written
confirmation from our suppliers that all of the raw materials and products bought by us comply with the REACH regulation.
In 2003 the „Swedish Environmental Research Institute“ confederate with leading companies of the construction industry for
launching the BASTA system. The target of this system is to identify and eliminate highly toxic and dangerous chemical substances
in building products. Armstrong registered its flooring products in the BASTA initiative as it is one of our main targets
to offer only products which are safe for humans and the environment.
