I am trying to find out more information about how the regulations for fire retardency for bedding might apply to prisons. At present the bedding supplied to prisoners by prisons meets the required level but there has been no requirement on prisoners who buy their own bedding to meet the same fire standards, therefore their bought bedding would meet domestic regulations. The Prison Service is now telling prisoners that the law says they must get rid of any personal bedding that does not meet crib 7 and re-purchase (at high cost) new bedding which does meet this level. Could you please tell me if there has been a recent change in the law to spur this demand, and in such an establishment as a prison would the law require the prisoners' own property to meet commercial standards; it seems that somebody visiting a hotel would not have any additional towels or bedding they take with them inspected for compliance.
