For the Industry

  • Furntech-AFRDI exists to raise the standard in the manufacture of furniture, reflecting changing social expectations for quality and environmental performance along with emerging standards on sustainability
  • Furntech-AFRDI works in close co-operation with industry bodies through independent professional testing and credible product certification, accessing technologies from within Australia and overseas
  • Furntech-AFRDI’s testing and certification gives those who sell quality furniture a point of differentiation in a market where many products may outwardly appear to be much the same.  Furniture carrying the Furntech-AFRDI logo or Blue Tick carries a pedigree

For the Member

  • Access to information about standards, makers and technological development, particularly important during a period of rapid change to meet emerging environmental expectations and the accompanying need for greater durability
  • "One-stop-shop" for advice on furniture standards and purchasing standards
  • Testing and research facilities which can play an important part in product liability risk management.  Furntech-AFRDI is now a Registered Research Agency (RRA) which can carry out high-risk development work for members while attracting for them a tax rebate under the Australian government’s Research and Development support program
  • Competitive advantage through product testing and certification
  • Independent expert advice on disputes with suppliers, customers and consumers. Furntech-AFRDI’s Customer Complaints Service has resolved hundreds of issues over the past five years
