Get an overview of current testing and regulation for furniture in the North American commercial marketplace. Review the relevant ANSI,BIFMA,CFR,UL and CA standard testing parameters in detail. We will cover four main areas: Performance Durability, Electrical Safety, Flammability, and Environmental Sustainability.
Identify how to properly apply the standards to a specific product based on the intended criteria - and learn about common mistakes to avoid. Hear about the standards that are anticipated and in development, so you can get a jump on planning.
Discuss considerations for entering a new market or product segment, so you can bring your best, even in unfamiliar territory. Walk away with mandatory and voluntary requirements that apply to your products, and the knowledge to use the standards for best outcome.
