SGS, the world’s leading testing, inspection and certification company, is delighted to announce a complimentary webinar, ‘Mattress Testing for North America’, which takes place on Tuesday, May 31, 2022.


Whether manufacturers are producing mattresses for the first time, or contemplating changes to existing models, the regulatory landscape that controls fire safety, analytical, physical and mechanical performance testing can be complex and difficult to navigate. For example, US Code of Federal Regulation Part 1632 for Smoldering Ignition assessments requires the testing of six mattress surfaces for each prototype design.


This webinar is an opportunity to learn in detail about what mattresses are tested for, and how the process works. Evaluation data received on completion can be used not only to assist regulatory compliance, but also to aid manufacturers in marketing their products. There will be an opportunity to find out more about how SGS testing services can help in adding value to the complete product supply chain and lifecycle.


Presented by SGS experts Bobby Brown, Director of Operations, Connectivity & Products, and Michael Magee, Lab Manager/Federal Aviation Administration Designated Engineering Representative, the hour-long webinar will cover specific standards including US 16 CFR 1633/1632 and Canadian Requirement CAN 27.7. It will be of interest to mattress component suppliers, assemblers, buyers and compliance professionals.
