Established in 1973, the Business and Institutional Furniture Manufacturers Association(BIFMA) International is a not-for-profit organization. BIFMA serves businesses that are primarily engaged in design, development, marketing and fulfillment of office and institutional furniture products. BIFMA develops voluntary product and industry standards that support safe, healthy and environments.
This Standard was developed by the Joint Committee on Business and Institutional Furniture Sustainability using the consensus process described by the American National Standards Institute. The Committee was created by the BIFMA and NSF International. (Founded in 1944, NSF is committed to protecting public health and safety worldwide.).
The purpose of this voluntary Standard is to provide measurable market-based definitions of progressively sustainable furniture. This Standard provides a pathway towards sustainability by establishing measurable criteria for multiple levels of achievement and/or performance.
