US Law Label Requirements & States with Tagging Laws
What is a Law Label?
The purpose of the law label is to inform the consumer of the hidden contents, or “filling materials” inside bedding & furniture products. The law label was born in the early 1900s to prevent these articles from being further manufactured with contents such as horse hair, corn husks and whatever else a manufacturer could find to use that the consumer would never see. It’s similar to food labeling.

What is a Uniform Registry Number (URN)?
When a manufacturer registers in a state, it is issued a Uniform Registry Number (URN). This URN must then be registered in the other states requiring registration so that only one URN is needed. This URN identifies the company as the manufacturer of the products and must be printed on the law labels attached to the products. Only a manufacturer can be issued a URN. A single manufacturing company that has multiple plants must have a different URN for each location.

Technical Bulletin 604
Proposed Flammability Test Method
for Bedclothing Products
The Bureau of Electronic and Appliance Repair, Home Furnishings and Thermal Insulation (Bureau) has suspended its effort to begin the formal rulemaking process to implement Technical Bulletin 604, the proposed flammability standard for filled bedclothing products.
The suspension, commencing on March 29, 2010 will allow the Bureau to collect the latest statistical data and reassess the bedclothing flammability standard. This will also allow the Bureau the opportunity to gather information and data from other interested stakeholders.

E. Existing Open Flame Standards Currently, there are no mandatory flammability requirements for residential bedclothes in the United States. A few voluntary standards apply to bedding items. ASTM D4151-92 (2001) measures ease of ignition and surface flame spread of blankets. Underwriters Laboratories (``UL'') has a standard for electric blankets. A European standard, ISO 12952--Textiles--Burning behaviour of bedding items, Parts 1-4, specifies a general test method for assessing the ignitability of bedding items. F. California's Rulemaking In 2001, the California legislature passed Assembly Bill 603 (``AB 603''), which mandated that CBHF issue regulations by January 2004 that would require that mattresses and box springs meet a test for open- flame resistance.
