Important - make your mark on the industry

The Baby Products Association has been involved in the revision of the Furniture and Furnishings (Fire) (Safety) Regulations 1988 since its announcement in 2009. This regulation affects anyone who manufactures or supplies upholstered baby products that have a cover and filling.

You now have the chance to ensure that the industry benefits from the proposed changes to these Regulations by responding to the consultation by the deadline of 11th November 2016.

Please find a link to it here: https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/furniture-and-furnishing-fire-safety-regulations-proposed-changes-2016

The Baby Products Association attended the first meeting which took place in early 2010. In this time it has campaigned to ensure the interests of its members were given fair and proper consideration, engaged in lobbying activities with a succession of MPs and consulted independent experts to validate the information it has provided and help refute information submitted by other agencies that it found to be incorrect.

The latest draft of the revised Regulation would indicate that the hard work, time and effort devoted to this cause has been rewarded and the industry involved in the manufacture of products currently in scope of the Regulations as a whole is likely to benefit.

The Association has prepared a paper detailing its responses to this Consultation following the latest stakeholder meeting with the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy on 20th October. This has been circulated amongst its membership and it is happy to share these with any company that would like some assistance in completing its responses. Email Julie James at julie@b-p-a.org to obtain a copy.

 It cannot be stressed strongly enough how important it is to respond to ensure the potential benefits to this industry are not lost so please take advantage of this opportunity.
