All glasswool products manufactured by Knauf Insulation are made of non-classified fibres (fibres that are less bio-persistent than every day dust) and are certified by EUCEB. EUCEB, European Certification Board of Mineral Wool Products -, is a voluntary initiative by the mineral wool industry. It is an independent certification authority that guarantees that products are made of fibres, which comply with the exoneration criteria for carcinogenicity (Note Q) of the Regulation (EC) 1272/2008.To help user’s identify the safety of our glasswool fibres the EUCEB logo is displayed on our product packaging and/or labels.

Eurofins “Indoor Air Comfort” (IAC) product certification is an innovative tool to show compliance of a product with low VOC emissions.

Earthwool® is certified as achieving a Gold Standard – this is the broadest standard available today that meets all existing criteria with regards to Indoor Air Quality.

Non-combustible is a defined term in the Building Code of Australia (BCA). The compliance of a material to the Building Code of Australia (BCA) non-combustibility definition can be determined by conducting an AS 1530.1 standard combustibility test.

If the material satisfies the criteria outlined in the test method the material is not deemed combustible. Knauf Insulation products have been independently tested in NATA accredited laboratories; giving end users confidence in the standard of the test and procedures.

The ILAC Mutual Recognition Arrangement (ILAC MRA) provides significant technical underpinning to the calibration, testing, medical testing and inspection results, provision of proficiency testing programs and production of the reference materials of the accredited conformity assessment bodies that in turn delivers confidence in the acceptance of services and results. Knauf Insulation’s laboratory has demonstrated its technical competence to operate in accordance with MS ISO/IEC 17025:2017 (ISO/IEC 17025:2017), means the laboratory meets both the technical competence requirements and management system requirements that are necessary for it to consistently deliver technically valid test results and calibrations.
