Advanced Furniture Testing is officially now a part of Underwriters Laboratories. As of Today (October 1) we have been acquired by UL to broaden their services and portfolio in the furniture industry.
- We are pleased to announce the first educational column about testing has been published by the MMQB this week.
- We are pleased to announce that our lab in Jasper, IN has been awarded accreditation.
- ANSI/BIFMA X5.5-2014 has been offically released today! In this new standard there are several new tests as well as updates on the present ones. I just want to bullet point the more important ones here.
- This past month we have had the pleasure of testing a product outside of the furniture industry. For those of you who know us, you know we are extremely dedicated to testing furniture, so anything else we test is news.
- A standard was reaffirmed for the second time in BIFMA's history. ANSI/SOHO S6.5-2008 for Small Office/Home Office Furniture was reaffirmed this month and released as ANSI/SOHO S6.5-2008 (R2013). The reaffirmation process precludes any significant changes to tests and acceptance levels.
