Rule making to regulate flammability of bedclothes put on hold

Apr '10
Hardy Poole, Vice President, Regulatory and Technical Affairs, National Textile Association (NTA) reports that the California Bureau of Home Furnishings (CBHF) has suspended efforts to begin a formal rulemaking to regulate the flammability of filled bedclothes like comforters, pillows and mattress pads. The Bureau had been working to develop a proposed rule for several years but work on the proposal slowed and, apparently, stopped in recent months.

On the federal level Hardy reports that the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) published an Advanced Notice of Proposed Rulemaking for open flame ignition of bedclothes on January 13, 2005 and sought comments from the public.

NTA responded but, since that time, CPSC has not considered the matter as a high priority. With the CBHF's suspension of the rulemaking, the CPSC program is the only regulatory effort underway to address the flammability of bedclothes.
