FIRE SAFETY OF FURNITURE AND FURNISHINGS IN THE HOME - A GUIDE TO UK REGULATIONS

This guide has been formulated using the independent expertise of the Furniture Industry Research Association (FIRA) which has been testing and advising on flammability issues with valuable contributions from the Executive of the British Furniture Confederation and the wider industry. The guide provide understanding of what needs to be done to ensure product compliance, and which tests apply to which products. In addition, there are still many products, especially imported items, which do not comply. Changes in materials usage, plus novel products, design and technologies, and a growth in imports, mean that vigilance is still required to ensure all those responsible understand their obligations.

To gain an understanding of:

• The regulations for fire safety of furniture and furnishings in the home
• Current practice and changes in the furniture and furnishings industry
• Ambiguities and anomalies resulting from misinterpretation of the regulations
• The responsibilities of different organisations in the furniture supply chain
