CDG is your experienced partner to prove conformance according to the ANSI/BIFMA  furniture sustainability standard and enable level® certification.

Dependable office furniture keeps offices running. A main factor in choosing new furniture is durability. Fortunately, international standards exist to make sure office furniture is as reliable as manufacturers say.

 

One set of standards has been created by the Business and Institutional Furniture Manufacturers Association (BIFMA). This international organization has been around since 1973, and it represents furniture manufacturers from around the world. BIFMA creates and oversees a variety of standards for furniture safety and quality.

BIFMA stands for Business and Institutional Furniture Manufacturers Association. BIFMA certification referred to as BFM is to provide office furniture, file cabinets, couches, tables, screens and other office furniture to provide testing services. Furniture from all other countries in the world to enter the United States market, must first obtain the international standard certification issued by BIFMA. Therefore, BIFMA plays an important role in the foreign trade exchanges of the international furniture industry.

 

As voluntary standards, manufacturers can independently choose to create products that meet the requirements. By choosing to purchase furniture that has been certified by BIFMA, consumers can get quality furniture and peace of mind. They know the furniture will perform as expected year after year.

 

BIFMA sets out a variety of standards, including ergonomic measurements, textile characteristics, sustainability guidelines and performance testing.

 

For example, the BIFMA X5.1 - 2011 Office Chairs standard is a detailed document that outlines performance tests that evaluate the safety, performance and durability of office chairs. It specifies that the chair back must withstand a pressure of 150 pounds. Another test is dropping 125 pounds onto the seat from 2 inches above, and then repeating the test for 100,000 repetitions to ensure the seat is reliable. BIFMA standards ensure that the furniture will not catastrophically fail, even if a piece is damaged.

 

There are also BIFMA standards for environmental and sustainability guidelines. BIFMA sets out specific tests that can measure the chemical emissions from furniture and to assess the sustainability of materials.

 

Choice Office Furniture carries products that have been tested and meet BIFMA standards.

The Risks Of Going Rogue

While it’s not a mandate to have ANSI/BIFMA compliance it certainly provides a high level of confidence to any prospective customers.

 

Especially when it comes to purchasing ergonomic office chairs, companies that ignore these standards could be wasting money. By purchasing inferior, cheaper products, you’re only saving money up-front.

 Consider that you’ll probably have to replace inferior equipment more often. Then consider the decreased ROI and more frequent comp claims. Seems like cheaper isn’t better in this case, right?

At CDG, we guide you every step of your project. We carefully prepare the test plan, to ensure that you won’t be doing tests that would be redundant. That’s right, not every unit of every line needs to be tested in order for them to be considered compliant.

That means that with a few choice parts, you can usually cover most of your product line.   All of this at very competitive prices and with fast turnaround time.

The new BIFMA Compliant registry is an industry-wide list of furniture products

that meet the rigorous BIFMA safety and durability standards. The BIFMA

Compliant mark supports specifiers searching for trusted products by providing

confidence in recommendations and simplifying the verification process.

The below list is the many Trendway products that have been certified as

BIFMA Compliant.

 

Unfortunately, not all standards are required by law. This is true in many industries, including the office furniture industry. Even though, the office furniture industry still different standards to regulate the production and use characteristics of furniture.

What A BIFMA Test Entails?

The BIFMA tests are very strict. In order to let you know what their testing process is like, following are some examples of tests performed on office chairs:

Base stability

Seat drop

Back pull

Swivel cycling

Tilt mechanism testing

Arm and back durability

Caster durability, swivel, and rolling

Only after a chair passes all of these tests (and more) will it be BIFMA certified.

Most of our standard chair parts has passed the BIFMA test and obtained the certificate.  And the article “Inspection Standards for Armrests of Office Chairs“, shows us some specific standards for armrests.

The level standard for furniture is unique in that it goes beyond the manufacturing process and facilities to also look at the company that manufactures the product. In the accreditation process, the sustainability of the company and its processes are measured against 4 elements of review:

• Energy & AtmosphereBifma level registered Web

• Human & Ecosystem Health

• Social Responsibility

• Materials

Established in 2009, the level standard works on a points-based system, allowing applicants to achieve a standing of level 1, 2, or 3. Each level represents a higher degree of sustainability compliance. It also uses more approachable terminology to make its benefits more easily understood by all parties, from manufacturers to consumers.

Discover the benefits of level accreditation for your furniture products. The level certification involves greater transparency over proprietary furniture eco-certifications, and is conducted by an independent third party certifier, providing increased confidence for environmentally conscious consumers with products bearing a level mark. A further advantage to level certification is that the standard is in use in international markets, including Europe and Asia.

 

Our auditors are exceptionally qualified with excellent backgrounds and experience. It is Orion’s commitment to work together with our clients and provide them with the highest level of professionalism and satisfaction. CDG auditors are fair and thorough and treat each of our clients with respect. They are not interested in promoting bureaucracy, but in learning the distinctive ways in which a company has met the requirements of the standard.

If you shop around for a standing desk, sooner or later you’re likely to come across this discordant acronym ANSI/BIFMA in the marketing literature of numerous office furniture manufacturers—especially those that specialize in selling products to large enterprise, government, and educational institutions. This acronym refers to a not-for-profit, standards-setting body known as the Business + Institutional Furniture Manufacturers Association (BIFMA), which operates under the auspices of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), another not-for-profit organization. The highest quality office furniture products are tested by independent laboratories around the world (usually for-profit companies) to the ANSI/BIFMA standards.

Contrary to a very common misconception, neither ANSI or BIFMA is a government agency, although ANSI states that it is comprised of “government agencies, organizations, companies, academic and international bodies, and individuals, representing and serving the diverse interests of more than 270,000 companies and organizations and 30 million professionals worldwide.” It has an annual operating budget of $36M, which it has to spread across countless activities and sub-organizations, like BIFMA, as but one example.

BIFMA, on the other hand, includes as its members and key funding sources the larger office furniture manufacturers in the US, and is based in Grand Rapids, Michigan—the Silicon Valley of the contract furniture industry. Think Steelcase, Herman Miller, Knoll, Haworth, et al.

So what exactly is meant by contract furniture? It’s rather simple, really. Contract just refers to durable business furniture that is designed and tested to actual standards of quality and durability—namely, ANSI/BIFMA standards.

To put this in context, the office furniture industry as a whole sells about $46 billion of goods in the USA each year, of which only 40%, or $18 billion, is sold by the contract office furniture manufacturing industry. Whether it be fixed-height or sit-stand desks, filing cabinets, chairs or cubicle partition panels, these products are typically marketed as “ANSI/BIFMA certified” along with the Standard to which they are certified (e.g. “ANSI/BIFMA X5.5-2014” or the recently updated “ANSI/BIFMA X5.5-2021”)

The other 60% of office furniture is sold through retail and online outlets like IKEA, Amazon, and most of the companies whose products we review on this site—without any kind of assurance as to its durability. With rare exceptions, these sellers do not bother having their products tested at an independent laboratory to see if they would meet BIFMA standards for durability. And they have little reason to, given that their buyers likely have never heard the acronym ANSI/BIFMA before, and generally have lower expectations as to their durability.

To achieve BIFMA certification, a product must meet or exceed all applicable testing benchmarks – and remain up to date on all testing procedures and policies, which BIFMA updates regularly.

 It’s not uncommon to see products tout the label “meets BIFMA requirements”. While these products are still technically safe, this is not the same as BIFMA Certified. Only products that have been legitimately tested and achieved BIFMA certification can be marketed as “BIFMA Certified”.

The benefits of BIFMA Certified furniture

Products that are BIFMA Certified contribute to a safe and functional work environment, thereby decreasing work-related injuries and even increasing productivity. BIFMA Certified furniture is durable, long-lasting and often backed by a warranty of five years or longer. It will undoubtedly withstand the rigors of 8-hour workdays, year after year.

CDG has been offering BIFMA testing services for the past 15 years.  BIFMA stands for Business Furniture Manufacturer’s Association.

What is Business Furniture Manufactures Association – BIFMA?

The BIFMA Level certification program calls for products to be reviewed for material utilization, energy and atmosphere impacts, human and ecosystem health and social responsibility.

While some purchasing agents consider ANSI/BIFMA compliance a minimally-required check-off item on their punch list for buying desks for their organizations, in our experience it’s a starting point, not a conclusion. Be sure to read our lab-tested reviews or, better yet, do your own testing, to make sure that taller individuals and treadmill desk users can also use these products at the appropriate height without suffering from ergonomic or stability issues.

What BIFMA Does and Does Not Require in Testing a Standing Desk

testing stability of a desk ansi bifmaUnder its standards document for sit-stand workstations (ANSI/BIFMA X5.5 – 2014 DESK PRODUCTS), the organization discusses tests for “Top Loading, Load Ease, Lock Mechanism, Extendible Element or Roll-Out Shelf Cycle, Out Stop, Rebound, Racking, Leg Strength, Horizontal and Vertical Adjustment, Stability, Cycle Testing for Receding Doors, Interlock, Drop Test for Receding Door, and Unit Drop.” In their own words, “This standard specifies acceptance levels to help ensure reasonable safety and performance independent of construction materials, manufacturing processes, mechanical designs, or aesthetic designs.”

The independent testing lab that performs BIFMA testing on a sit-stand desk will set up a custom lab experiment to cycle the product thousands of times, usually over a period of one to three weeks depending on the duty cycle of the motors. Robotic sensors and actuators will simulate a user making the desk go up and down repeatedly, making it shake back and forth, and trying to make it tip over.

In other words, the lab will continuously torture the desk to try and make it fail the standards. Weaker products will be trashed by the end of the test run, if not failing before the tests are even completed. To be labeled as certified to a specific standard a product must pass all of the tests defined in that standard, i.e. there are no partial certifications.

If there are any electrical components in the desk, BIFMA will require that they be tested to UL (Underwriters Laboratories) standards as well. The classic “shake and bake” testing for seeing if the product catches fire, exudes toxic fumes, explodes or otherwise harms users usually renders the product unusable at the end of the test. This is just part of the cost of the robust certification process.

Whether it is for chairs, desks, panel systems or storage units, should you wish to be able to sell to GSA, the Canadian Government and/or lower level Government; you will need to have had your BIFMA testing done. 

BIFMA stands for The Business and Institutional Furniture Manufacturer's Association. The office furniture manufacturers association (BIFMA) is a non-profit organization that serves as an information resource center and representative of the office furniture industry, providing professional and extensive trade development opportunities for the office furniture manufacturing industry in North America.

 

BIFMA sets standards for the stability, strength and fatigue of office furniture, and its standards are strict and perfect, which has won widespread recognition.

The BIFMA standard is well known for its comprehensive content and technical rigor, and has won wide recognition around the world.

Generally speaking, the test content is mainly about the stability, strength and fatigue of the test, the test items in various countries are similar, but the BIFMA standard has gradually won wide recognition with its perfect content, strict requirements.Distributors and dealers of ergonomic products and office furniture often look for proof that what they buy backs up its claims.

One of the ways they receive that assurance is BIFMA compliance. Buying compliant furniture means getting a product that stands up to workplace conditions while helping employees do their jobs more effectively.

What Do BIFMA Standards Mean to the End Customer?

Note there is no BIFMA certification -- the organization doesn't "certify" products. Some office furniture may be labeled as “meeting BIFMA requirements.” A nice thought, but this is not the same as official recognition of compliance.

Top 5 Reasons to Order BIFMA-Compliant Products

There are many distinct advantages in purchasing BIFMA-compliant products, including:

Peace of mind in knowing the furniture has met rigorous safety standards

Promoting a work environment that is both functional and comfortable

Employees who work in safety-conscious environments are usually more productive

Fewer work-related injuries and workers’ comp claims

 

Getting a durable product with a warranty 5 years or longer
