Furniture and Furnishings (Fire) (Safety) Regulations

The regulations apply to all landlords, estate agents, letting agents, charities selling furniture, and anyone selling or supplying second-hand furniture as part of a business or trade.

The full DTI guide can be seen here; www.dti.gov.uk/files/file24685.pdf.
The regulations apply to all furnishings, and furniture, furniture coverings, and seat pads, and furniture used in houses, gardens and caravans.

Foam/fillings used must pass the required test. The only way to ensure such compliance is to have an appropriate and permanent display label indicating that the
furniture/furnishings are safe. Examples of these labels are shown in the DTI guide; www.dti.gov.uk/files/file24685.pdf.
The regulations apply to charity shops.
Legal  Duty of Care for Commercial and Householder Waste Producers

Commercial concerns have a  legal duty of care to ensure that the waste generated is removed and
disposed of properly, and in accordance with the law. Every organisation or business or individual
householder is required to take reasonable measures to ensure that they only transfer their waste
to an authorised person. An authorised person is either a Registered Waste Carrier, or site that
holds a Waste Management Licence.

Businesses or individuals failing to take reasonable measures, regardless of whether the waste is fly
tipped, commit a criminal offence. And can be subject to a £5000 fine.

When arranging any waste to be collected you should:   Ask the contractor if they are a Registered
Waste Carrier, and for their registration number.  

Ensure you receive a waste transfer note.
