Certificates & Audits

If you are looking to export furniture from Indonesia, you need to make sure your products have the right certificates. To receive these certificates, you need audits from recognized companies.

Certificates

Firstly, if you are exporting wooden furniture, it is essential that your wood is SVLK certified. The indonesian government has issued this certificate for legality and traceability of wood. Secondly, FLEGT, called V-Legal in Indonesia, is another certificate regarding wood legality and traceability for export to Europe. Thirdly, Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) issues several certifications like chain of custody.

Furthermore, if your furniture contains paint, you need the certificates REACH or Lead Paint, for Europe and the USA respectively.

Then, there are social and ethical certificates like SMETA (SEDEX) and ICS. These certificates are both globally recognized and are issued to companies that prove to be ethical regarding labor, health, safety & business ethics.

In addition, if you want to export furniture with upholstery to the UK, you need the UKFR license regarding fire safety.

Auditors

Intertek and Bureau Veritas are two of the biggest auditors around that facilitate most of the above-mentioned certificates. Other leading audit companies are AQM, Arche, QIMA, API, SGS, TUV and UL.

Lastly, the not-for-profit organization FSC takes care of its own certifications.
