Furniture and Furnishings (Fire Safety) Regulations Training

This flammability training course is perfect for new starters, colleagues needing a recap and experienced colleagues needing confirmation on relevant issues. This course is structured in a way to show why and how the regulations came about, a look at what’s in and out of scope, an in depth look into the schedules and requirements, a look into relevant British Standards that cater for the contract market and finally, understanding and obligations to due diligence.

Key take-aways:

For manufacturers: You will take away a great understanding of raw material testing requirements, display and permanent labelling requirements and due diligence obligations. For importers/suppliers: You will take away the above, and in addition, you’ll see exactly what manufacturers should be giving you, you’ll be able to confidently specify your requirements and finally, you’ll be able to implement quality systems in regards to your due diligence on your manufactures.

For retailers: You’ll take away all the above, and in addition, you’ll be in a position to know exactly what manufacturers and suppliers are giving you, when to request reports and improvements on your due diligence to increase product safety and reduce risks and recalls.
