What does the TRAUMPASS label certify?
Traumpass is a quality seal used for bedding, sleeping bags and clothing that are filled with down and feathers. Products marked with this seal must be filled with down and feathers from the two highest classes l and ll in accordance with EN 12934. In addition, all raw materials used in Traumpass products are by-products from meat production and thus sourced exclusively from slaughtered animals. Companies who use the seal on their products have agreed to adhere to this specification.
Monitoring manufacturer information on filling composition is carried out anonymously by an accredited testing institute on products bought from retailers.
The certificate “Traumpass DIN tested” is only awarded by DINCERTCO, Berlin, if there is proof that the product quality and traceability conditions have been met. Only then may the label “Traumpass DIN tested” be used. Information about the certification programme can be accessed online at: http://www.dincertco.de/de/traumpass_daunen_und_federbetten.html.
If a bed-feather producer violates the strict standards, he will have to face measures such as a cease-and-desist letter, fines or the TRAUMPASS licence would – at worst – be withdrawn.
