British Furniture Manufacturers

BFM Code of Practice

The BFM is the leading trade association for British furniture manufacturing companies.

A principle objective of the BFM is to encourage all members to adopt good trading practices and to promote high standards of furniture quality, construction and design. To do this, members must follow a Furniture trade association Code of Practice, specifically, the BFM Code of Practice

Each member is governed by the BFM Articles & Memorandum of Association and membership is only with approval of the BFM Board of Directors.

The purpose of the BFM Code of Practice is to:

Promote integrity:

The BFM Code of Practice promotes the integrity of BFM members to customers and consumers by subscribing and conforming to the standards defined within the code. 

Promote the BFM:

The BFM Code of Practice promotes the BFM and its members to the wider industry and consumers, at home and overseas. 

Promote best practice:

The BFM Code of Practice promotes best practice by BFM members. 

It should be noted that this Furniture trade association Code of Practice reflects the minimum standard expected of BFM members. Each member company must undertake a self-certified audit to establish that it abides by the BFM Code of Practice as a condition of membership. However if you have been audited by a leading retailer or buying group this will fast track your audit, therefore you will be asked to provide evidence.
