There is an increasing number of furniture products sold in the domestic and contract markets that are designed using ‘off-the-shelf’ electrical components to enhance the features beyond those normally considered important for furniture (strength, durability and comfort). As such it imperative that the furniture industry has reliable access to information to ensure compliance, and of course safety for the end-users.

By incorporating these features into the completed product, furniture manufacturers need to ensure their furniture complies with any applicable EU Directives and understand CE marking of the completed product and that of the individual components used.

  • Introduction to CE Marking, including European Directives, harmonised standards, International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) standards; electrical products / components and related CE Marking Directives
  • Installation and wiring regulations for furniture
  • Common CE Marking Directives and national standards related to furniture incorporating electrical accessories
  • Components incorporated as accessories into furniture and related standards for components
  • Proof of conformity for CE marking
