What is UK & EU domestic flammability testing?

UK & EU domestic flammability regulations stipulate that all UK & EU upholstery retailers must ensure that all products are tested against the regulations and comply.

Testing is carried out on each individual component, rather than the whole sofa/chair to verify that each component on the product is fit for purpose.

UK & EU domestic flammability testing applies to the following upholstery components:

  • Textile covers
  • Leather covers
  • Foams and fillings
  • Non-visible covers
  • Interliners


Why test your domestic upholstery products for flammability?

Without a test report stating that your products are compliant to the UK and EU domestic flammability regulations, you cannot legally sell your products within the UK and EU. The regulations were brought into place to increase product safety by increasing product resistance to flames and fire caused by open flames and fire hazards in the home.

  • A domestic flammability testing service accredited by UKAS
  • A fully comprehensive and easy to understand test report, complete with before and after burning pictures
