BIFMA Compliance

We are proud to participate in the BIFMA Compliance Program.

BIFMA Compliant has been developed in response to a market need for more clarity. Especially as technological and societal shifts impact the furniture industry and products enter the market from more sources than ever before, decision makers need better access to information.

This program is an important step toward providing that information and delivering needed differentiation. It’s designed to provide members of the design community, dealers, buyers, and others who participate in the specification of commercial furniture greater ease in identifying products they can trust.

When you choose Indiana Furniture, you choose an expansive portfolio of style and options that can be specified with complete confidence.


BIFMA Compliant is an industry-wide registry of furniture products that conform to BIFMA safety and durability standards. Compliant provides clarity to the market by differentiating products that meet established industry standards. Manufacturers around the world are invited to participate.

With an array of options available on the market today and recognizing that individuals and organizations are now outfitting home/alternative office environments, BIFMA seeks to help all customers make confident buying decisions. The registry is a resource for both specifiers and buyers to quickly identify quality products that comply with safety and durability standards.


BIFMA’s marketing and technical committees have worked collaboratively since 2018 on the BIFMA Compliant program, which covers nine mechanical standards that focus on safety and durability.

  • ANSI/BIFMA X5.1 Office Seating
  • ANSI/BIFMA X5.11 Large Occupant Office Seating
  • ANSI/BIFMA X6.1 Educational Seating
  • ANSI/BIFMA X5.4 Lounge and Public Seating
  • BIFMA X6.4 Occasional-Use Seating
  • ANSI/BIFMA X5.5 Desk / Table Products
  • ANSI/SOHO S6.5 Small Office/Home Office
  • ANSI/BIFMA X5.6 Panel Systems
  • ANSI/BIFMA X5.9 Storage Units

Products that comply with the any of the nine covered standards may use the trademarked BIFMA Compliant mark and apply it on products to which the conformance applies.
