CertiPUR-US® tests for durability, content and indoor emissions. Home furnishings items, such as upholstered furniture and mattresses, that carry the CertiPUR-US seal contain flexible polyurethane foam products that have been tested and certified by an independent laboratory to meet specific criteria for physical performance, indoor emissions and environmental stewardship.
CertiPUR-US is an extension of the European CertiPUR program developed in 2002 by EUROPUR, the association of European flexible polyurethane foam block manufacturers. This voluntary testing, analysis and certification program was developed by members of the global foam industry in response to an increase in substandard imported foams.
