UK product safety requirements

E-mail Print PDF

Most product safety regulations and standards in force in the UK now are common requirements across the European Union member states. However, there are still some exceptions where the UK retains its own regulations or has published a voluntary standard prior to the development of a European one.

One issue on which UK requirements are particularly demanding is the flammability testing of upholstery in furniture (and some child care products) but suppliers of children’s' clothing with hood cords on are also more likely to be prosecuted under a longstanding UK Regulation than the General Product Safety Regulations.
