New Hampshire bans all FRs in furniture

The State of New Hampshire has adopted a bill (SB193) banning the sale of furniture which contains > 0.1% “flame retardants” in its covering or cushioning. A “flame retardant” is defined as any chemical “for which a functional use is to resist or inhibit the spread of fire”. Mattresses and furniture for public use are exempted. This follows similar bans already enacted in the States of Maine (pinfa Newsletter n°84) banning all FRs in furniture, and in California (pinfa Newsletter n°95) banning all non-inorganic FRs in furniture and children’s products.
