DNV - ISO 9001 Quality System Certification
Sustainability and Certification
Finnish fur producers comply with responsibility and they ensure the welfare of their fur animals.


In Finland, the law sets requirements on fur farming, and these provisions are further complemented by certification, a self-imposed control system. This system aims at maintaining and improving animal welfare, production quality and farmers’ professional skills on the fur farms in Finland. Finnish fur farmers are very committed to the farm certification system and developing it further: most of the farms are certified. They understand the importance of the certification to the buyers, fashion houses and fur garment users.

In addition to certification auditors, farms are regularly visited by representatives from
Regional State Administration Agencies,
Centre for Economic Development,
Transport and the Environment,
Tax Administration,
Supervising veterinarian,
Finnish Food Authority,
Building Control Committee, and
Rescue Department

Finnish Fur Breeders' Association FIFUR is responsible for the farm certification system and its development. DNV Business Assurance, a global provider of accredited certification, has granted FIFUR’s administration and operations ISO 9001 certification. DNV audits the Association’s quality system and all processes as to their compliance with the ISO 9001 standard.
