I started my professional career in the textile world in which I built up a solid textile knowledge and expertise.
I assist clients in the test set-up for determining certain product properties, mainly for floor and wall coverings, and inform them about legal requirements of the Construction Products Regulation EU CPR 305/2011 and Marine Equipment Directive MED 2014/90. In this context, I perform the necessary FPC audits for product certification.
I am an expert in the standardization committees CEN/TC 134 WG8 and ISO/TC 219 WG1 Textile floor coverings as well as in the standardization committee Wall Coverings CEN/TC 99. I also monitor other work groups, including CEN/TC 351, TC350, TC 126, TC 217, TC 249 WG22, TC 339, and ISO TC46 SC6.
