The scheme aims to offer reassurance that a manufacturer, retailer, upholsterer or supplier of upholstered furniture has suitable processes and procedures in place to demonstrate due diligence compliance with the UK's Furniture & Furnishings (Fire) (Safety) Regulations (FFFSR).

We're hosting an event with Hertfordshire Trading Standards on 8 February to enable upholstery manufactueres and retailers to learn more about the new scheme. Click here for further details and to register.
