Forest Stewardship Council (FSC)
Any company that wants to add the FSC label to any of the products it makes must first receive chain of custody certification. This certification proves it is sourcing materials from FSC-certified forests, recycling and/or controlled sources and is following FSC-defined best practice throughout the production process and supply chain. But it does not mean that all products they produce are comprised of these materials.
Only products that use FSC-certified materials can carry the FSC on-product label. You still need to look for the FSC label on individual products to find out which are FSC-certified and which are not.
Hussey Seating has earned the Chain of Custody Certification allowing us to put the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) label on our products. Website
Canadian Welding Bureau (CWB Certification)
The Canadian Welding Bureau (now known as CWB Certification) was formed by the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) over 75 years ago. The purpose of the Welding Bureau is to administer Canada’s national welding standards, which are embedded in the national building code and other industry-specific documents. Funded by industry, and acting on behalf of the Canadian public, the Welding Bureau plays an important role by certifying welding companies that create products for use within Canada as well as the welders and welding consumables used in their creation.
Hussey Seating products have met the standards set forth by the CWB and earned the CWB Certification. Website

European Norm 1090 Certification (EN 1090 Certification)
EN 1090 is a set of harmonized European standards regulating the fabrication and assembly of steel and aluminium structures.
Effective as of July 2014, EN 1090 replaces various national regulations such as DIN 18800-7 and DIN V 4113-3 in Germany. There are three sections within EN 1090:
EN 1090-1: Requirements for conformity assessment for structural components (CE marking)
EN 1090-2: Technical requirements for the execution of steel structures
EN 1090-3: Technical requirements for the execution of aluminium structures.
Since July 2014 all manufacturers must be certified to EN 1090 by an accredited body – also known as a notified body – and only structural steel and aluminium components with the corresponding CE marking may be sold in or supplied into Europe.
Hussey Seating products have met the standards set forth by the European Norm standards for 1090. Website
