Quality marks

Compliance with the quality requirements is carried out by a neutral monitoring body.

Since 1 January 2010 A.S. Création uses only FSC ®-certified papers and non-woven sheets, so that all of the wallpapers produced by A.S. Création since that date carry the FSC ® seal. The FSC ® (Forest Stewardship Council) was established in 1993 and is a non-governmental, non-profit organisation which advocates the environmentally sound, socially acceptable and economically sustainable and viable utilisation of the world's forests. For this purpose, the FSC ® has laid down minimum environmental and social minimum standards that must be adhered to in the management of forests.

The FSC ® seal shows consumers that wood used in the manufacture of the product concerned comes from a responsible and sustainable managed forest.
