The QPM Program will provide clarity by utilizing one mark to support all claims.
Today’s furnishings marketplace features more products, fierce competition, and a growing number of marketing claims trying to sway buying decisions. Such claims can include the testing furniture has undergone, the makeup of the product, and the durability of its materials. The question on our minds is how does anyone actually get to the truth?
Intertek’s Quality & Performance Mark (QPM) is the answer. This mark means it has been tested and validated to rigorous specifications by an independent laboratory. This gives buyers, manufacturers and retailers a no-nonsense, realistic assessment of a product’s true quality and performance. In addition to the mark itself, Intertek hosts an online directory specifically for furniture clients. This directory and certificate will provide validation to the mark as well as validate any claims made.
QPM Mark for Furniture: To qualify for the QPM Mark, manufacturers must complete a comprehensive evaluation of the furniture product to a specific set of measurable attributes, in addition to a unique individual product manufacturer claim validation.
QPM Mark for Bedding: There are many claims made about the quality and safety of mattresses and bedding. Intertek can help you stand out from the rest with our QPM Mark.
