Wood and Furniture Standardisation Office (BNBA)

The Wood and Furniture Standardisation Office (BNBA), incorporated within the FCBA, directs and coordinates the standardisation of wood, its by-products and furniture. AFNOR delegates to the BNBA its role as the national representative for most of the business sectors of the wood and furniture sectors. The documents available on the website concern the areas of activity related to the FCBA at national (NF), European (CEN) and international (ISO) level.
