Following the publication of the new Procurement Code (Legislative Decree 50/2016), in fact, for the Italian Public Administration it has become mandatory to make green purchases for the products and services for which the relative CAMs (Minimum Environmental Criteria) have been issued by the Ministry of Environment, including in the tender documentation at least the technical specifications and contractual clauses contained in the CAM, as well as, where possible, also the rewarding criteria. 
 
Having in their catalog products conformed to CAMs therefore allows companies to access supplies for Public Administrations, either by directly participating in tenders, or by providing customers who are awarded public contracts.  
Since the characteristics required by CAMs can be found in the main international Green Building protocols, rewarding quality and sustainability, these can also serve as a tool to approach the international market.

The service of the Furniture and Home System Cluster to obtain compliance with CAMs for interior furnishings, and in particular for products or product families that use a range of selected materials, consists of the following activities: 
 
Gap Analysis: phase dedicated to the collection of useful information to assess the "gap" between the characteristics of the products considered and the requirements required by the Ministerial Decree 11 January 2017. At the conclusion of the audit a report will be delivered in which, for each of the investigated criteria, will be highlighted the state of the art of each product and the "gap" for the satisfaction of the same; 

- Improvement plan and compliance support: analysis and identification of the procedures and / or technologies to be implemented aimed at meeting the requirements of the Ministerial Decree of 11 January 2017, highlighting any necessary investments (eg costs for laboratory analyzes, conformity reports of accredited third bodies) and / or the organizational commitment to be guaranteed.
