Small Business Minister introduces safety standards for Bioethanol Tabletop Products (Australia)
As the industry processes the events of recent months surrounding bioethanol fires, it is important to keep abreast of announcements from relevant authorities and commentary within the media.
Small Business Minister Michael McCormack has just conducted a press conference in which he has advised consumers to stop using `Tabletop Burners’. This comes after the advice of the ACCC who have investigated a number of consumer injuries relating to Tabletop Burners.
As a responsible member and spokesperson for the bioethanol fire industry, Cocoon Fires welcomes the new safety standard announced by Minister McCormack for decorative bioethanol burners.
Since the Interim Ban was imposed in December 2016 we’ve consulted closely with the ACCC and the various stakeholders to identify the points of concern and map a pathway forward.
After a long process of conferences and submissions, the result is that high quality bioethanol fireplace products that meet certain specifications: have a dry weight of 8kg or over & a footprint of 900cm2 and bearing: clear consumer instructions and advisories & equipped with sound refuelling
and flame management equipment can continue to be marketed.
Cocoon and Icon Fires are committed to safety and product development. All Cocoon Fires and Icon Fires products will comply with the new safety standard governing decorative bioethanol burners.
