The FRETWORK Code of Good Practice
Fretwork comprises organisations that apply flame retardant treatments to textiles and those who provide the chemical formulations for those treatments. These businesses play a vital role in ensuring furniture manufactured in the UK meets the stringent flammability requirements.
FRETWORK is pleased to announce the formation of a Primary Authority partnership with Nottinghamshire County Council (NCC) Trading Standards. Fretwork members enrolled in the scheme can now benefit from formally assured advice from Nottinghamshire.

and type ‘FRETWORK’ in the search box.
A Group of Fretwork members has developed a Code of Good Practice (FCOGP) with input from Nottinghamshire Trading Standards. Nottinghamshire is also developing an audit programme to ensure Fretwork members comply with the Code’s requirements.
We have 11 points in our “What is good practice” guide.
The FCoGP represents a commitment to demonstrating process control over the production of textiles to meet the requirements of the FFR.
Making those process control systems both transparent and available for audit.
Textile Processors that manufacture flame retardant textiles play a key role in the supply chain when the choice and use of chemicals and systems are considered.
