I am a student who needs this bed per doctor, but must meet fire tests below:

`. Boston Fire Department IX-Full Composite Burn Test Boston Fire Department IX-11 (Regulatory notice of October 25, 1990 and revised August 19, 1991) 2. California Technical Bulletin #129 3. ASTM 1590 4. UL TEST 1895 If the mattress meets all of these can I get a certificate?

Hi there -- Thanks for your question. I'm not sure I completely understand your situation, and am afraid I can't speak to all of the specific burn tests you mentioned -- however, any mattress sold in the US in the past 10 years or so is required to meet some pretty stringent fire retardancy standards that were put in place around 2007. So, as long as your mattress is not some kind of custom mattress that was made specially for you and/or sold outside of ordinary mattress retail channels, then it should already meet all fire retardancy standards, as required by law.

If, on the other hand, your doctor ordered you to get a mattress that is non-standard (e.g., custom-made for you), then a prescription from your doctor is often enough to allow you to purchase the mattress without the normal fire retardancy features.

I hope that helps.
