Information for residents

Stichting Normering Flexwonen
The Stichting Normering Flexwonen (foundation for flexible housing standards, or SNF) administrates the register of organisations that meet the housing standard for migrant workers and at the same time maintains that standard. Organisations that offer housing for migrant workers have the option of obtaining the SNF certificate. In order to do so, they must meet the housing standard for migrant workers. Housing locations of organisations that register with the foundation are subjected to an annual audit. If the housing is found to be unsatisfactory and the organisation fails to rectify the situation in the short term, the housing provider is removed from the SNF register.The objective is to provide parties dealing with the housing of migrant workers - municipalities, employers, employees, local residents - with the security that the housing of migrant workers is adequate.

The Standard
An organisation that has been admitted to the SNF register meets the housing standard for migrant workers. The standard distinguishes subjects such as Space and Privacy, Sanitary Provisions, Safety and Hygiene, Provisions, Information Provision and other Requirements and Fire Safety. Each subject includes a number of specific requirements which the housing must meet. An organisation that has been admitted to the SNF register is authorised to use the SNF quality mark logo. To get an impression on the rules, see the document below. Please note that this document in English is not the latest version of the standard.
