At the end of 2017, RSB will start the process of defining and approving standards for the wood sector. At present, there are no standards, quality control guidelines or grading rules for a majority of both, local and imported, wood products and furniture for domestic, office and educational use. RSB is planning to develop and approve standards for home furniture, office furniture, school furniture, the processing of wood and wood products.
Since RSB is dealing with wood and furniture standards for the first time, the responsible staff is lacking specific know-how of the wood sector. It requires high level technical expertise to develop working drafts, which can be analysed and discussed during the stages of the standardization. Hence, Eco-Emploi will capacitate RSB to drive the standardisation process and to enable the responsible staff of RSB to develop suitable standards benefiting the quality of products.
