    Permanent labelling

    The labelling specifications for mattresses, divans and bed-bases are covered separately by BS 7177. There are two versions of permanent labels that manufacturers and importers can choose from:

    • A label giving full information about the furniture (see example below)
    • A shorter label giving only the minimum information about the furniture.
