2008 Edition of ANSI-Approved Products Standard Released

 

GRAND RAPIDS, MI - The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) has approved the new edition of ANSI/BIFMA S6.5 Small Office/Home Office Products standard, and copies of the new edition are available from BIFMA immediately. 

The BIFMA SOHO Subcommittee worked diligently to harmonize this new edition of S6.5 Small Office/Home Office Products standard with other ANSI/BIFMA standards such as ANSI/BIFMA X5.9-2004 Storage Units, ANSI/BIFMA X5.6-2003 Panel Systems, and ANSI/BIFMA X.5.5-2008 Desk Products standard. 

The definitions, test set-ups, test procedures, and load applications have been modified for consistency among these standards.

The standard was formally approved by ANSI following an open, balanced, multi-stakeholder consensus voting process and public comment period that included manufacturers, suppliers, test labs, academia, users, and retailers.  

Contact Dick Driscoll at rdriscol@bifma.org or (616) 285-3963 for further information about the changes and improvements to the new edition of BIFMA's ANSI/SOHO S6.5-2008 Small Office/Home Office Products standard.
