Candle Advice Sheet - How to Make Candles

Candle Advice Sheet - How to Make Candles Legally and Safely

The following advice sheet (January 2020) was written, in collaboration with the BCF, by Rob Abell of Windsor & Maidenhead Trading Standards. It details many of the issues that have to be taken into account once you start selling candles. It can be found here.

There is also a corresponding check-list that can be used alongside the advice sheet. This can be found here.

Trading Standards have issued a short introduction to the PAS 7100:2018 "Code of practice on consumer product safety related recalls and other corrective actions”.

There is now a sample Candle Burns sheet for doing your own candle safety testing. This follows the Specificatio for Candle Fire Safety standard  EN 15493:2019.
