ISO 24496 Chair Measurement Device and Training

Achieve precise and efficient measurement of office chairs to meet international standard ISO 24496.

Since 2013, stakeholders and industry experts have worked to develop a harmonized Chair Measurement Device (CMD) that can be used to measure ergonomic performance of office chairs. The result of this effort is ISO 24496, Office furniture — Office chairs — Methods for the determination of dimensions, a standard designed to measure and understand office chair performance in a variety of usage scenarios and, for the first time, address US and European standards. UL was a key participant in the standard development process.
