Adoption by Endorsement

Adoption by endorsement for the latest version of this international/national standard and the previous adopted edition remains effective for 2 years starting from the date of last international update

This European Standard specifies the categories of flammable materials which are prohibited in all toys, and requirements concerning flammability of certain toys when they are subjected to a small source of ignition. The test methods described in Clause 5 are used for the purposes of determining the flammability of toys under the particular test conditions specified. The test results thus obtained cannot be considered as providing an overall indication of the potential fire hazard of toys or materials when subjected to other sources of ignition. This European Standard includes general requirements relating to all toys and specific requirements and methods of test relating to the following toys, which are considered as being those presenting the greatest hazard: - toys to be worn on the head: beards, moustaches, wigs etc. made from hair, pile or material with similar features; moulded and fabric masks; hoods, head-dresses etc.; flowing elements of toys to be worn on the head, but excluding paper novelty hats of the type usually supplied in party crackers; - toy disguise costumes and toys intended to be worn by a child in play; - toys intended to be entered by a child; - soft-filled toys (animals and dolls etc.) with a piled surface or textile surface. NOTE Additional requirements for flammability of electric toys are specified in EN 50088, Safety of electric toys and EN 62115, Electric toys - Safety (IEC 62115:2003 + A1:2004, modified)
