Intertek, a Total Quality Assurance provider to industries worldwide, announces the launch of its Furnishings Verified Program. The program provides a level of transparency to the furnishings industry by illustrating how a product meets multiple standards and specifications in one succinct, easy-to read report.

The furnishings industry demands transparency with regards to whether products meet industry standards and consumer and retailer specifications, as well as the product’s materials and overall sustainability. With the Furnishings Verified Program, manufacturers can illustrate how their products meet these various standards and specifications with one short, concise report available via the Furnishings Verified Database and a document called the Verification of Conformity, given to the client. This report provides clarity and peace of mind with regards to a product’s sustainability, quality, safety and performance in a quick, easy-to read manner.  It also protects confidential or private product information appearing in longer form reports that manufacturers may not wish or need to disclose.

Brian Kneibel, General Manager of Furnishings at Intertek said: “Our goal at Intertek has always been to provide innovative Total Quality Assurance solutions to the industry. We are thrilled to offer customers in the furnishings industry with a program that allows them to meet the demands of the industry and marketplace, through fast, efficient and easy testing means and documentation.”

Intertek is an experienced industry leader in furniture testing needs, including performance, electrical safety, flammability, regulatory, and sustainability. The Furnishings Verified program is supported by a global network of labs and local knowledge to create a solution unique to each client’s immediate and long-term initiatives.
