Technical Regulations & Standards for Beds
Download a full list of all the relevant regulations and standards you might need to consider.
As well as the finished product – mattresses, divans, bases, bedsteads and headboards, we include bunk and foldaway beds, children’s mattresses and cots and also foams and other fillings, fabrics and springs/wire.
Please note: There is no legal standard on size tolerances for mattresses and divan bases in the UK. Accepted industry practice is + or – 20mm on the stated or advertised length and width.
We will try and keep the list up to date with any new standards or amendments. If any members would like to add any standards to the list, please let us know!
