There are more than 1,200 ANSI-approved standards set in place that are designed to protect consumers, the workforce as a whole and the general public. ANSI is also responsible for the first American Standard Safety Code, published in 1921, which detailed the importance of both head protection and eye protection for industrial workers.

What Is BIFMA?

BIFMA, or the Business and Institutional Furniture Manufacturer’s Association, is a non-profit organization which was established with the purpose of creating voluntary standards for furniture industry keeping environmental protection in mind. It means, BIFMA releases standards which specifically apply to institutional and business furnishings and also lobbies for legislation that will continue to make office furniture safer for workers and consumers.


To ensure that a particular office furniture meets the combined standards of both ANSI and BIFMA, it is passed through a series of test conditions. These tests decide that furniture is safe to use. We provide BIFMA testing and certification services in Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore, Kolkata India.
