The European Association (latin: Societas Cooperativa Europea (SCE)) is an incorporated association with member organizations from various EU countries. The founding members of the natureplus InstituteSCE are active across Europe and wish to express this commonality in the legal form of the association.
The Association members’ common basis lies in the scientific quality assessment and evaluation of building products. They were initially brought together as group through their activities for natureplus e.V. These independent test/assessment institutes were instrumental in the award process for the natureplus Eco-label for building products, which is recognized across Europe.
