The Furniture Industry Research Association (FIRA) has announced that a new furniture flammability course is to be held next month.

The training event takes place on 20 July 2016 and focuses on flammability regulations for both domestic and contract furniture, aimed to help navigate the complexity of the UK’s flammability regulations under the General Product Safety Regulations (GPSR).

FIRA, widely recognised as the experts in flammability for furniture, is encouraging all sectors within the furniture industry to attend the course, which is based at FIRA headquarters in Stevenage.

FIRA stated: “If you are a manufacturer, importer, retailer or specifiers of upholstered furniture, then you have a responsibility to ensure you are complying with the relevant flammability legislation for both domestic and contract environments, such as office, hospitality, educational and healthcare.

“This course aims meet demand from the industry for support in this field.”
