It is the aim of GUT’s members to supply consumers with products that do not pose a health hazard and are environmentally friendly. Thus, both the production facilities and the fitted-carpet merchandise are subject to regular voluntary controls by independent test houses.
Compliance with GUT’s criteria is safeguarded by means of GUT’s comprehensive three-track product test.
- Pollutant test
- Emission test
- Odour test
Articles awarded the GUT signet will be tested annually in control tests at manufacturers’ plants and dealers’ sales outlets.
The GUT product test is conducted on freshly produced fitted carpets.
This will ensure that the tests provide a reliable picture of the respective production.
The tests are performed on neutralized samples by accredited testing institutions throughout Europe on behalf of the GUT.
