SEFA Recommended Practice
The Scientific Equipment and Furniture Association (SEFA) is an international trade association comprised of manufacturers of laboratory furniture, casework, fume hoods and members of the design and installation professions.
SEFA and its committees are active in the development and promotion of Recommended Practices. SEFA’s Recommended Practices are developed in and for the public interest. These practices are:
- designed to promote a better understanding between designers, architects, manufacturers, purchasers, and end-users, and
- to assist the purchaser in selecting and specifying the proper product to meet the user’s particular needs.
The Recommended Practices cover the design, construction, installation, testing, maintenance, and safe use of laboratory furniture, fume hoods and related laboratory products and accessories. Considering the SEFA’s Recommended Practices are periodically updated, they are numbered to include an annual suffix which reflects the year that they were updated.
