Importing Garden Furniture


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

I am looking into importing garden furniture from China. The furniture is made from metal & plastic with foam seat & backrest cushions. The factory has tested the foam slabs & the covering fabric which is removable, the results are as follows: 

The sample(s) MEETS the following requirement(s): 
1. The Furniture and Furnishings (Fire) (Safety) Regulations 1988. S.I. No. 1324(amended 1989, 1993 and 2010), 
Schedule 1, Part I, Ignitability test for foam in slab or cushion form when using ignition source 5 of BS 5852:Part 2: 

What I am trying to understand is, do I need to carry out some tests here in the UK or can I sell these with the current test results from China? 

Lastly, it has the following label on all cushions: 

. Filling material(s) and 
coveting fabric(s) meet the 
UK requirements for 
resistance to cigarette and 
match ignition in The 
Furniture and Furnishings 
(Fire) (Safety) regulations 


Is this adequate for labelling or is more required?
