BIFMA Introduces New ANSI Occasional-Use Seating Standard

Tuesday, 18 January 2021

THE AMERICAN NATIONAL STANDARDS INSTITUTE (ANSI) has approved the new safety and performance standard: ANSI/BIFMA X6.4-2021, Occasional-Use Seating.

The BIFMA Subcommittee for Seating Standards worked diligently for the past three years to intro- duce this new ANSI standard. The Subcommittee began work in 2017 and provided guidance for the 2018 publication of BIFMAX6.4-2018 Occasional-Use Seating. Demand for this standard increased in 2020 with the influx of work at home due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, the Association sponsored development of X6.4 to become an American National Standard.
