To protect the health and safety of the public and our employees, DCP has limited on-site staffing at 450 Columbus Blvd. While mail and phone calls will be processed as quickly as possible, we recommend using our online services, or sending an email to the appropriate division/person instead. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Bedding & Upholstered Furniture Importer

Due to current events, it is highly recommended that all applications and renewals be submitted online.  Our ability to receive and process mailed applications, renewal notices and payments will be significantly delayed.

Prerequisites:   

  • The Connecticut definition of an importer is “any person who imports bedding and upholstered furniture from outside the United States.” The fee for the importer license is $100 annually and will always expire on April 30. An importer, with the one license, can import an unlimited number of manufacturers.

Required Documentation:   

  • Each individual bedding and upholstered furniture manufacturer must be licensed in the State of Connecticut with its own individual URN for the factory location. A separate manufacturer license must be completed and submitted with the fee of $100. The importer may put their name and address in the mailing address section on the manufacturer license application if they are taking responsibility for the payment of the license and renewal.
