The CertiPUR-US® program is limited to certification of foam used in bedding products such as mattresses, toppers and pillows, as well as sofas, chairs and other upholstered furniture. Foam producers submit their flexible polyurethane foam for evaluation, content analysis, and testing by independent, accredited laboratories.


To be CertiPUR-US®-certified, the foams must be made without ozone depleters; PBDE, TDCPP, TCEP and certain other flame retardants; formaldehyde; mercury, lead and other heavy metals; and prohibited phthalates regulated by the CPSC; and must have low VOC emissions for indoor air quality (less than 0.5 parts per million). If the foams meet these rigorous and comprehensive guidelines, they must be recertified after six months in the first year and annually thereafter.
