Looking beyond simple compliance with the legal minimum our performance assessments help you to increase customer confidence and satisfaction, as well as to gain a competitive edge. Comparing your products against other in your own range, or against those of your competitors, we help you to set a benchmark, and then exceed it.

Quality, comfort, functionality, durability and ease of handling – all factors that have a direct impact on how customers perceive your products and your brand. Our furniture assessments can help you determine these performance factors, and define performance criteria either on a single product (fit for use, FFU) or an entire range (benchmark). Beyond performance, we can also carry out label reviews and product claim verifications.
