Consultation description

We think the Furniture and Furnishings (Fire) (Safety) Regulations 1988 are out of date, and in some cases represent an unreasonable burden for furniture manufacturers. We’re proposing to bring the regulations in line with changing furniture making practices and consumer preferences.

We want to hear from stakeholders in industry, fire and rescue services, and trading standards, as well as from consumers.
