Public consultation on information provided to consumers about characteristics of furniture products


Information about specific furniture
product characteristics, provided to consumers at the time of purchase, may be
insufficient for them to compare between different furniture products sold on
the EU market. For example, such information may relate to furniture product
weight, dimensions, origin, materials and substances used, quality processes
applied, product durability, instructions and precautions on use, cleaning and
disposal, etc.

In this
context, some EU countries have introduced or been considering developing
information schemes specific to furniture products, which complement
information required under the EU product safety legislation. These national
schemes may well facilitate consumers' purchasing decisions, however, their divergent
information content can possibly impact the companies trading furniture across
the EU.

The
objective of this public consultation is therefore to gather stakeholders'
views on the possible needs for and impacts of enhanced information
accompanying furniture products sold in the EU.
