- Product Recalls
- Review of Flammability Standards
- Main Findings
- Extended list of BS EN 60335 Part 1 and Part 2 standards

Alongside the Furniture Industry Research Association forming part of the Project Stakeholder Group, the report also references various Research Association Guides and Standards concerning flammability.
The Research Association will continue to keep members informed as the flammability regulation review continues, including supporting when the expected consultation is live over the coming months.
