Rochester Hills, Michigan — CertiPUR-US has expanded its certification programme to now include with a beta phase test of regulations for moulded flexible foam as well as slabstock used in bedding and furniture.
CertiPUR-US for moulded bedding/furniture foam in beta phase
Participation in the programme is limited to slabstock producers which are already in the programme and moulded foam makers who are invited to participate, said CertiPUR-US. Once the beta phase is concluded, the moulded foam certification programme will be open to all foamers which have qualifying products, CertiPUR-US added.
"This natural extension of the CertiPUR-US programme was driven by considerable demand from the industry to address consumer questions about the moulded foam products in their homes," said CertiPUR-US programme executive director Mike Crowell.
Currently there are 31 foam makers participating in the programme, with about 450 other manufacturers, distributors, and retailers, the organisation said.
