On September 20, 2018, California approved Senate Bill 1483. The Senate Bill made revisions to the Home Furnishings and Thermal Insulation Act and Rules and Regulations. The revisions included an amendment to the “Bureau” referenced within the law. The “Bureau” will now be referenced as “The Bureau of Household Goods and Services.” 


As a reminder, California Technical Bulletin 117 labeling does make reference to the “Bureau” and therefore, the CA117 labels will need to be updated to include the latest “Bureau” title change reference (refer to examples below). 


Bureau Veritas conversations with the state of California have confirmed that CA117 law labels must reflect the reference to the Bureau of Household Goods and Services as of January 1, 2020. CA117 labels with the BEARHFTI referenced can be used up to December 31, 2019.
