imported furniture from china

Recommended Posts

Hi ! I was wondering how can i comply with imported furniture (chairs and sofas)  from china in order to use it in the restaurant ?

I am the first importer as I ordered it and shipped it in the UK . What documents do I need in order to be compliant ?

How do I do that ? 

Many thanks

It all depends on the fire risk assessment and what level of fire resistance is needed. It is likely it would need to meet the medium hazard when tested to BS 7176: 2007 Specification for resistance to ignition of upholstered furniture for non-domestic seating by testing composites and carry the appropriate label or equivalent.  You would most likely need to have  documented proof to establish any claims made.

You should study Fire safety of furniture and furnishings in the contract and non-domestic sectors to see how complicated it is.
