VCamping furniture are products that are subjected to a number of tests to verify their full functionality, robustness and durability. All the requirements of the applicable standards that we mention here should be met. It is the responsibility of the manufacturers to demonstrate conformity of their products to the applicable standards and to declare that the products meet all the requirements laid down. Generally, the manufacturers can demonstrate conformity of their products in three ways:

  1. The manufacturer has its own, in-house test station and verifies all the parameters in there. 
  2. The manufacturer has the parameters verified by one of the testing laboratories that are competent to perform the required tests.
  3. The manufacturer takes a risk, does not verify any parameters and simply places its product on the market. This, however, is a very hazardous approach both for the manufacturer and (especially) for the users of such a product.
