A quality label is only effective and trustworthy when it is reliable and transparent. Therefore all certified products are liste in the Database Certified Products: all products bearing the eco-INSTITUT-Label are listed there with their certificate, their individual certification ID and validity period.
Usually a certificate is valid for two years.
When the validity of a certificate has expired but the product is in recertification process the box “pending” is active.
When a product has not been recertified or its certificate is not valid anymore but the product is not in recertification process the product is marked as “expired”.
