Association for Business and Institutional Manufacturers
BIFMA stands for Association for Business and Institutional Manufacturers. BIFMA is the not‐for-profit trade association for business and institutional furniture manufacturers formed with the purpose of creating voluntary standards that would promote safe working environments.
