Certification

Quality is a major priority at VELUX and we devote extensive resources to testing, quality control and market testing to ensure that our products meet all quality requirements.
In our test department, products are continuously exposed to a variety of tests as an integral part of our efforts to develop and improve our products.

We expose our products to extremes of climates and expect them to function perfectly in constant daily use, year-in, year-out. We encourage our customers to expect the very best and back our production with fair guarantees.

All VELUX Roof Windows are now CE marked. To obtain copies of the CE certificates for individual roof windows, see our CE Marking section.

VELUX Certificates

OHSAS 18001
OHSAS (Occupational Health and Safety Assessment Series) is an internationally recognised health and safety management system which requires each factory to lay down a number of objectives for occupational health and safety and to produce action plans for achieving these objectives. In this way, responsibility for health and safety is lodged with management at each individual factory.2003 saw the first VELUX factory certified according to OHSAS 18001, and the work has continued in 2004 and 2005 where all factories were certified.
PEFC and FSC
The Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) is committed to promoting sustainable forest management through independent third party forest certification.

The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) is an international network to promote responsible management of the world’s forests.

The VELUX factories were some of the first to start working with new standards that were adopted by FSC and PEFC in autumn 2004 and some of our factories succeeded in obtaining FSC and/or PEFC certification as early as in 2004.

This means that we can now document that the majority of our windows come from certified factories. All the factories that produce VELUX windows are owned by VELUX, so we are in control of the whole process from the wood leaves the suppliers’ sawmills till the windows have been manufactured at the factories.

Our FSC or PEFC certified factories are controlled by an independent third party who verifies on an ongoing basis that we live up to the requirements in the FSC and PEFC standards.

In 2008 VELUX obtained PEFC chain of custody certification for 24 warehousing facilities, VELUX A/S and a number of sales companies. The certification is proof that traceability of a product to its origin is guaranteed and that it can be documented that the timber used comes from sustainable forests.

BBA Certification
VELUX have achieved comprehensive BBA certification on our product range.
EN/ISO Certification

ISO 14001

Since 1997, VELUX has sharpened its focus on achieving its environmental targets by basing its environmental work on certified management systems.
Our factories are certified to ISO 14001, the international standard for environmental management systems, which underpins our targeted efforts to take a sensible approach to the environment and natural resources by requiring all the factories to set environmental goals and ensure continual improvements.

ISO 9001

The VELUX factories have been certified according to ISO 9001, and a roof window is designed and manufactured in accordance with relevant international standards.
In specific areas, such as watertightness, VELUX has introduced its own standards that are stricter than international standards.
In the countries where VELUX was first established, it is still possible to find working windows that were installed more than 40 years ago – the best possible proof of durability.
