We’re at the centre of technical knowledge for the furniture industry.

Updates from standards committee meetings are shared to enable members to follow key decisions and objections related to their business interests.

Latest regulation changes and news on compliance affecting everything from timber to chemicals, from flammability to safety is also made available to members.

Our Standards Database contains a wealth of knowledge including a description of each standard, status, year, standard type and much more. All of this is exclusive to members.


From our annual Statistics Digest to Quarterly Standards Updates, to research on the hot topics which affect the industry, we fund and undertake key research to help members understand trends, market conditions and regulations.


The members-only section of hosts all our knowledge and research. As part of membership, an organisation's employees receive a login so they can search and access what they need, when they need it.
