1988 Fire Regulations

Recommended Posts

My furniture has labels which indicate that it complies with the 1988 regulations. Is this enough for me to be able to sell it, or allow me to donate it to a Charity?

Posting from FRFree, Yes, anyone who sells a piece of furniture in the UK is a 'supplier' under the Furniture Regs. Technically, this also applies to anyone giving away furniture for free. In practice, of course, it is highly unlikely that Trading Standards would know about or, if they did, bother to pursue an individual whose given away a second-hand sofa. It's worth bearing in mind that these Regulations are woefully out of date, not having been amended for nearly 30 years or so. Unfortunately, the Department for Business which is responsible for these Regs has deliberately ensured that the officials now 'working' on keep blocking all attempts for updating. Why? A long and complicated story but essentially in order to cover their backs. For more info, check out: www.toxicsofa.com.

A much more knowledgeable person than me and makes it clear the regulations have not changed yet, so both labels still apply but in my opinion the permanent one is the most important because all the proof trading standard would need is on there.
