FSF responds to Furniture Regulations consultation

The Fire Sector Federation has submitted a response to the Department for Business Innovation & Skills consultation on the Furniture And Furnishings (Fire) (Safety) Regulations 1988

BIS has proposed amendments to Schedule 5 – the Match Test – part 1 and Schedule 4 – the Cigarette Test.

The FSF has expressed reservations on the process and lack of independent technical review in arriving at the proposals and new test methodology.

It has agreed to put together a Technical Panel to peer review the new methodology; suggest changes if they are believed necessary and to consider some comparative tests and test data.
