SATRA remains open during the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic and has organised additional online resources and a special webinar programme
Children's furniture seminar
Thursday 12th November 2020
On the 12th November, SATRA will be holding a seminar to discuss relevant requirements and appropriate testing for children’s furniture, aimed at furniture technicians and technolgists, buyers and retailers.
Although there are few specific legal requirements for children’s furniture, due to the vulnerability and low risk perception in young children, using requirements from the Toy Safety Directive (2009/48/EC) and general industry standards are important as part of helping to demonstrate compliance with general product safety.
Speakers will present sessions on a variety of informative topics including toy safety standards, the restricted substances requirements in REACH (Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006) and the performance requirements for cot mattresses specified in EN 16890:2017.
The seminar includes a complimentary buffet lunch and will include testing demonstrations during part of the afternoon. Delegate numbers are limited to a maximum of 12, so please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your place on this seminar.
