The Dutch National Association of Crematoria has approved FAIR coffins for cremation and has included them within their approved list of materials. The LVC is an industry organisation of which all crematoria in the Netherlands are a member.

Members can exchange information with each other about the latest developments within the field and industry, e.g. regarding topics such as mourning, providing of services, legislation and new technical developments.
FAIR coffins contain very little plastic. The little plastic that is used – PLA – is fully eco-friendly and biodegradable. Within 12 weeks, the plastic will have degraded by at least 95%. This type of plastic may be thrown in the ‘bio bin’, together with e.g. food waste and plant material. It may also be thrown in the regular bin for household waste. When incinerated these plastics will then still generate some energy. The used logo is trustworthy: an independent and certified third party carries out inspection and checks.
