We have been supportive of making blinds with cords child safe for a number of years now, helping in reducing the devastating number of tragic child deaths that occur from accidental strangulation from blind cords. In March 2014, legislation was passed that put a legal responsibility on blind manufacturers, installers and retailers who manufacture and install blinds to do so in compliance with the safety standard, to make all blinds child safe.

BS EN 13120.
