Changes planned in UK upholstery flammability Regulations

FIRA is to hold a flammability workshop which is free to BFM members (£100 non members).

The workshop will take place at FIRA’s Stevenage Office on Wednesday 19th October.  It will begin at 10.30am and is scheduled to end at 2.30pm.  Lunch will also be available.

This follows the launch by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), of a further consultation into a potential revision of the Furniture & Furnishings (Fire) (Safety) Regulations.

The draft regulations are included in the consultation document which may be viewed on the GOV.UK website here.

The aim of the workshop is to:

Explain the proposed changes
Explore the impact of the changes
Look at any mitigating measures
Define an industry response to BEIS on the consultation

The event is now fully booked.
