​Meeting of UK Furniture Standards Committee held

A meeting of the British Standards Committee responsible for producing British Standards for furniture, FW0, was held recently in London.

The meeting, the first since 2013, was primarily a catch up meeting between the chairs of the panels responsible for various market sectors (test methods, domestic and contract furniture, office furniture and educational furniture) and the new BSI secretary for this committee.

In addition the committee was able to select the delegates to attend forthcoming European (CEN TC207) and International (ISO TC 136) Plenary meetings, which heavily influence the ongoing work programme for furniture standards.
