Furniture Flame Retardancy Icon

In updating its 2005 Furniture Flame Retardancy Partnership report, DfE consulted stakeholders to ensure that the chemical identification and hazard information is as accurate and current as possible. On June 12, 2014, EPA, through the Design for the Environment Program, posted for public comment the draft update of a previous alternatives assessment (PDF) (840pp, 9.35MB) on flame retardants used in flexible polyurethane foam. The draft report will be available for public review and comment until August 11, 2014  Please submit comments to Docket No. EPA-HQ-2014-0389 via www.regulations.gov.
