Davies Office is proud to announce that all 9 of our remanufactured lines are now BIFMA LEVEL 2 Certified!
Who is BIFMA?
BIFMA is the Business and Institutional Furniture Manufacturers Association that is a not-for-profit trade association for business and institutional furniture manufacturers. Since 1973, BIFMA’s role has been to sponsor the development and refining of current and future standards, educate on their importance and application, and translate their necessary complexity into more easily understood and implemented formats. We also monitor the state of the industry, serve as a forum for member cooperation and collaboration, interact with international counterparts, and advocate for regulatory conditions that foster value and innovation.
What is LEVEL?
Developed with American National Standards Institute (ANSI) oversight in mind, LEVEL® functions in ways proprietary standards do not. The ANSI process requires full transparency, open and balanced participation in the standard’s creation, and a consensus-based approach to dealing with all issues related to the standard. Additionally, LEVEL certification assures that an accredited third-party has verified a specific product’s conformance to said standards.
Overall, LEVEL® is an evaluation and certification system for environmentally preferable and socially responsible office furniture. The LEVEL® program addresses criteria across corporate, facility and product impacts in a way that few other certifications do by studying th environmental, health & wellness and overall social impacts while including third party verification.
