The GECA Carpets standard identifies the significant impacts of the product category and sets specific requirements for performance, material content, adhesives, emissions, water consumption, energy use, and criteria for minimising waste.
The scope of this standard applies to the following types of broadloom and modular tile carpets:
🔘 Natural fibre carpets such as wool.
🔘 Synthetic polymer fibre carpets comprising nylon and nylon blends, olefin (polypropylene), polyester, acrylic, polyamide and polyethylene terephthalate (PET).
🔘 Blends composed of materials that fit into the above fibre types.
Other carpet materials that do not directly fit into the above may be considered for certification, provided the product fulfils the requirements of relevant sections of this standard.
Other types of carpet material may be added to the scope at a later date after a formal review.
