Accreditation and Testing
Good Environmental Choice Australia (GECA)
FX Australia is committed to environmental sustainability, safe work practices, social responsibility and equal opportunities within our working environment. And because of our commitment, FX’s comprehensive range of special effects and architectural coatings are currently being rigorously assessed by BSI, an independent auditor – a first important step to achieving GECA certification for all our products.
What is GECA?
GECA is the organisation that runs Australia’s only independent, not-for-profit eco-labelling programme. GECA sets standards which consumers can confidently use to identify products that meet high social and environmental benchmarks.
The GECA standard for Paints and Coatings contain 32 strict criteria by which each product is assessed, from raw materials and environmental waste to equitable work practices. GECA certification allows designers and architects to achieve ‘green ratings’ for their projects. Most importantly, GECA is globally recognised. Stay tuned for further updates.
Standard ISO 9001 : 2015
FX Australia is accredited with ISO 9001 : 2015, which ensures quality management and processes are adhered to. This standard relates to maintaining a high level of customer service, production, warehousing and accounting procedures.
Bureau Veritas is the independent auditor for this standard.
At FX Australia, we test and re-test our production methods and products both in the laboratory and in the field for their ability to meet designated purpose and function, and to evaluate their immediate and long-term impacts on a sustainable future. Regular additional testing is carried out by highly regarded, accredited independent laboratories.
