Safety standards update


Safety standards update

The newly revised safety standard – BS EN 13209-2 Child use and care articles. Baby carriers. Safety requirements and test methods. Soft carrier has just been published. This has been transposed into a hazard based format, in line with CEN rules and is now much more user friendly. BPA members are entitled to a 20% discount against BSI prices for all safety standards, including this one, so if you would like to order a copy, please contact Julie James on 0845 456 9570 or email julie@b-p-a.org. Alternatively non-members can purchase this directly from the BSI website at www.shopbsigroup.com.

The revision of the Furniture and Furnishings (Fire) (Safety) Regulations 1988 is still ongoing, five years after the process started. The BPA has continued to campaign for the removal of certain nursery products from the scope of these Regulations and again gained strong support from stakeholders at the last two meetings in July and August 2015. It previously showed strong resistance to the proposed new match test which would call for currently unregulated materials within 40mm of the covering fabric to undergo testing. The BPA called on its members to submit their comments during the consultation period and were not disappointed, with a landslide of comments submitted to the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills. Now nearing the deadline for the publication of the revised Regulations, scheduled for April 2016, the BPA has written to the new Minister for Small Business; the Rt Hon Anna Soubry MP again outlining the detrimental effect inclusion of certain nursery items is having on our industry. The date of the next meeting has not yet been set but we will keep members informed.
