September Quarterly Standards Update
The latest update on standards affecting the furniture industry is now live and available to members.
All meetings are continuing to take place virtually. Covid issues have caused delays for the working groups for EN 1022 Seating - Determination of stability and EN 14749: 2016 Furniture. Domestic and kitchen storage units and kitchen worktops. Both groups realised that they would not be able to meet project deadlines and have been granted extensions.
The update also includes the latest regarding the UK Flammability and REACH Regulations. Now that FIRA is recognised as an Occasional Stakeholder for UK REACH, we will be invited to participate in any decisions that will have potential impacts on the industry.
