Furniture Testing & Certification from TÜV ?Rheinland
Meet the most advanced U.S. and European compliance standards for furniture and ensure the safety, quality, and performance of your products.

The demand for new furniture designs, electrified furniture, and sustainable alternatives to the current range of products is on the rise. As this demand continues to rise, furniture manufacturers need ways to not only ensure the safety and quality of their products, but also separate themselves from the competition.

A high-caliber design of both the interior and exterior features of your furniture products demonstrates your commitment to quality and safety for added value and customer confidence. However, customers rely on reputable test marks to help them choose the best product for their individual needs. We conduct comprehensive furniture testing and certification in accordance with national and international standards as well as internal specifications.
