Legislation that dictates what items are suitable to be sold
Enfys Foundation is extremely grateful for all the kind donations it receives of second hand furniture and appliances, as it allows the charity to support people in the local community who are in need.
Regulations controlling the sales of any kind of furniture, whether it is brand new or second hand, legislate that all upholstered furniture must have a fire-safety label attached, stating compliance with the regulations.
The regulations are designed to ensure that upholstery components and composites used for furniture supplied in the UK meet specified ignition resistance levels and are suitable labelled.
To ensure that the furniture you would like to donate complies with regulations, you should check each item has a “fire safety label” attached.
Each item of furniture should have a liable attached, stating compliance with the regulations.
It is vital to ensure that the furniture that is received in the form of a donation adheres to fire safety regulations. Legislation is in place so it is against the law to supply upholstered furniture without this labelling, however above all it is crucial to ensure the safety of consumers, a responsibility which Enfys Foundation takes very seriously.
If you have any queries regarding fire safety labelling to get in touch for more information, and take a look at the rest of the Enfys website and Facebook page for more information on its services and products.
