The Fraunhofer WKI is a recognized testing, monitoring and certification body for national and international quality associations, authorities and organizations and performs monitoring for various certification procedures in the wood and wood-based materials sector. In addition, we support companies with regard to UKCA labeling for construction products and offer private-law third party monitoring for optaining quality and eco labels.
In the monitoring center, a competent team of auditors ensures proficient monitoring activities. Regular internal and external training courses together with the participation in specialist events and knowledge-sharing ensure that the auditors are always up-to-date with the latest developments. In addition to mandatory random sampling in dependence on the certification procedure, the auditors also take samples of the materials in order to determine flammability properties, PCP/lindane and the constituents of waste wood.
