IFAI Webinar | To Burn or Not to Burn: New Federal Flammability Law for Upholstered Furniture and What it Means for Your Company
May 11 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
40 years in the making, with the federal government first beginning work on this project in 1968, the Safer Occupancy Furniture Flammability Act (SOFFA) will finally go into effect June 25, 2021.
Signed into law in December 2020, this law, sometimes known as the Safer Occupancy Furniture Flammability Act (SOFFA), nationalizes the 2013 version of California’s Technical Bulletin 117. Join IFAI and product safety attorney and former CPSC official Neal Cohen who will explain the federal requirements of the new law, its origins, and – importantly – best practices and what to expect from CPSC and in the marketplace.
