About QUL

Since there were no statutory provisions concerning the character and attributes of latex mattresses (and, by the way, still are none), in the mid 1990s, on the initiative of the eco-INSTITUT a kind of round table came into existence consisting of those who deal with the production and processing of natural latex. This resulted in the founding of QUL. Latex foamers, mattress manufacturerers and dealers and many others are members of the QUL.The eco-INSTITUT is also a member of the QUL and significantly involved in the development of the test criteria.
