Quality and environment protection - the certifications of Erdért-Tuzsér Zrt.

The philosophy of Erdért-Tuzsér Zrt, which is one of the key participants of Hungarian timber industry and trade, is to pay proper attention to controllable quality policy and environment protection in its activities. This is proven by the various Hungarian and foreign certifications, as well as the recently introduced new ERDÉRT quality classification system.

Erdért-Tuzsér Zrt is committed to active environment protection, and is convinced that we have to put a stop to the ruthless felling that is of more and more concerning extent, and we should protect the ecological balance of the Earth. As a result of the hard work of several decades by some environment protection organizations, sensibly thinking international organizations, national governments and companies managed to create the already global FSC ® (Forest Stewardship Council ®) forest certification systems.

The FSC® marks credibly certify that the material comes from a certified forest that is managed in a sustainable way, thinking of the future, too. Of course, this system can only work if the process chain (C-o-C) qualification takes place at each intermediate owner and processor. The objective is to ensure that it can be followed, i.e. the certified and uncertified materials could not be mixed. The FSC ® certification acquired by the Sawmill and Product Centre of ERDÉRT at Tuzsér also proves that ERDÉRT maintains the C-o-C chain with continuous control. As a result, the company supplies FSC ® certified logs or sawn products, or if required, planed wood products.

In addition to the international certifications, the company finds it important to acquire the qualifications required by the players of the Hungarian market, too. Therefore the sawnwood, the planed products and the scaffold boards of Erdért-Tuzsér Zrt have ÉMI (Non-Profit Co. for Quality Control and Innovation in Building) qualification, based on which the company is entitled to issue the relevant Supplier's Adequacy Declaration. The certificate of the Plant and Soil Protection Service with registration number allows ERDÉRT to supply heat-treated sawnwood to producers of packing materials.

In 2004, a new national standard was introduced for strip flooring (MSZ EN 13990:2004). This new standard is available at our WOOD CENTRES, and can be found on the web page, too. In addition to using this new standard, Erdért-Tuzsér Zrt introduced a quality classification system that is easy to follow for the customers and satisfies their demands, for other covering elements, too. As there is no new standard applicable to these products yet, they have been classified according to a so-called "ERDÉRT free quality classification". The result of the classification can be seen on the labels of the products and on the usage guides of the products.
