There are three (3) test levels for bunk beds:
- those certified based on the basic safety requirements in the Australian Government Mandatory Safety Standard, Consumer Protection Notice Number 1 of 2003;
- those certified based on the full Australian/New Zealand standard (AS/NZS 4220), which covers comprehensive safety checks, strength & durability and stability tests; and
- those certified to AFRDI 152 Rated Load Standard for Bunk Beds. This covers all the requirements of the Consumer Protection Notice and AS/NZS 4220, but with increased severity so that Rated Load bunks can be considered suitable for people up to 135 kg in each sleeping position.
