It gives you all the information you will need to be able to carry out the physical tests required, and contains draft copies of the documents you need to produce and keep. There is also detailed information on how to meet the flammability requirements, and what to look for when purchasing materials in order to meet the requirements for chemical migration. The pack entitles you to 30 minutes of consultancy time for any queries you may have (consultancy time must be used within 12 months from purchase date). Any further queries will be charged at our standard rate.
