AS/NZS 4220:2010 Bunk beds and other elevated beds standard revision has been approved by Standards Australia.

AFRDI General Manager, Ian Burton, will be a major contributor to the revision.

The Standards Australia furniture committee has met to finalise the scope of the revision and now the working group is being finalised.

The Australian bunk bed mandatory standard, otherwise known as the Consumer Protection Notice (CPN), is based on the 1994 version of the Australian standard. Since then there have been reviews of the standard in 2003 and 2010.

It is hoped that the CPN will be updated to reference the latest version of the standard as it can be very confusing for our clients and the industry in general. This is because, as previously stated, the CPN still references a 1994 edition of the Australian standard.
