Be part of Furniture Industry Research Association

The Furniture Industry Research Association is the UK's largest furniture research association and the only organisation that provides support to the whole furniture supply chain, across all sectors.

If you're not a member, should you be joining hundreds of other organisations who benefit from membership?

Knowledge: The Research Association is at the centre of technical knowledge, so members are kept up-to-date with changes to standards and regulations. There is also a wealth of knowledge contained within our member-only Standards Database.

Research: From an annual Statistics Digest to Quarterly Standards Updates, to key research on the hot topics which affect the industry, the Research Association funds and undertakes key research to help members understand trends, market conditions and regulations.

Information: The members-only section of fira.co.uk hosts all of FIRA’s knowledge and research, and as part of your membership employees will receive a login so they can search and access what they need, when they need it.

Influence: Through our work with the British Furniture Confederation (BFC) members can feedback through consultations to share their views with government, standards committees and other bodies.

Furthermore 20% (excluding VAT) of membership fees for full members are converted into ‘voucher credits', redeemable against FIRA International services including testing, consultancy and training.
