BIFMA’s Compliant Program Webinar from SGS UK Ltd

During this webinar, we will explain the “BIFMA’s Compliant Program” and address the following main topics:

  • BIFMA’s Role in the furniture industry
  • Program Overview

BIFMA will launch the “BIFMA Compliant Program” in October 2020. Its aim is to support the easy identification of products that can be trusted for their safety and durability.

Companies successfully testing to BIFMA standards can add their products to BIFMA’s registry of compliance database.

Customers who buy products that are declared by their manufacturer to be BIFMA compliant can also review the online registry. This means that they can be confident that a product appearing on the registry has passed the appropriate BIFMA tests.
