He spent 4 years in materials and furniture testing and consultancy providing professional services to manufacturers, brands and retailers, in the UK, Europe and Far East.

Paul’s technical knowledge is augmented by his experience in product recall, from both manufacturer and retailer perspectives, including full traceability, notifications, policies and procedure building. As a product risk assessor, customers and FIRA members benefit from Paul’s product assessments which give a clear indication and understanding of potential and unforeseen risk twinned with advisories for action.

Paul is ISO9001:2015 Lead Auditor certified and performs technical audits for associations compliance schemes. Retail and supplier audits also fall under Paul’s remit, therefore, customers performing their own diligence and technical audits will benefit from consultation and delivery of audits nationally and overseas.

With the experience noted above, FIRA International customers and Research Association members benefit from Paul’s services in flammability regulations training, testing consultation, quality system implementation and a range of supplier/retailer specification guides to ensure due diligence is met.
