Our assessments

Our mission

Enable wise choices of material for a good living environment. Enable good documentation of built-in materials for future management. Encourage producers of materials to improve their products from an environmental perspective. Encourage the producers of materials to take social responsibility in their supply chain. Be a good and effective tool for documenting and tracking materials, products and their content.


All BVBs assessments are based on criteria regarding chemical content and life cycle aspects. Download our criteria.

To have a product assessed, Byggvarubedömningen needs to know the content of the product. Please fill out our application form and send it to bedomning@byggvarubedomningen.se.

Please also attach following documents if your product is:

  • An electronic device: RoHS-certificate in accordance with 2011/65/EU

An assessment takes 10 days. When the assessment is complete you will be able to see the preliminary result on our website and you will always have 14 days to provide complementary information or any comments (please contact bedomning@byggvarubedomningen.se). After these 14 days the assessment will be published in our database.
