When purchasing furniture one finds that there are no European Directives that refer particularly to furniture. However, the “General Product Safety Directive”  gives general requirements that apply to certain aspects of products that are not regulated by particular Directives. The Product Safety Act obliges producers to place only safe products on the market. A safe product means a product which, under normal or reasonably foreseeable conditions of use, does not present any risk or only the minimum risks, compatible with the product’s use, which are considered as acceptable and consistent with a high level of protection for the safety and health of persons. This is also applied for the furniture safety. There are issued many standards concerning to determine furniture performance.

Examples of what is examined when testing of furniture include:

  • Sections that can entrap fingers and other body parts;
  • Sharp edges and corners;
  • Shear and squeeze points;
  • Stability of the unit;
  • Structural strength.
  • Durability of the unit.
