About FIRA Gold Product Certification
The FIRA Gold Product Certification scheme covers all types of furniture and components and is the mark for product excellence. FIRA Gold Product Certification has rigorous test requirements for the products covered, backed by an ongoing audit and re-test programme to ensure that a particular product having achieved the FIRA Gold certification maintains the standard.
The initial product assessment is in-depth, objective and thorough. It covers amongst other things workmanship, ergonomics, strength and stability, finish performance and effects of atmosphere on a product. Not only that, but there is also an annual factory audit to ensure a factory produces the product to the same standards of the original assessment of furniture. Within this a review a production procedures, design changes and an examination of the complaint records ensures that any adverse trends are spotted and resolved immediately.
