Language in which you want to receive the document.


This part of 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 submitted to a small source of ignition. The test methods described in clause 5 are used for the purpose 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 part 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: - beards, moustaches, wigs, masks and other products worn on the head with pile, hair or other attached material; - disguise costumes (e.g. cowboy outfits, nurses' uniforms) including the associated head wear and toys intended to be worn by a child (excluding products covered by 4.2 and paper novelty hats, e.g. those supplied in crackers); - toys intended to be entered by a child (e.g. toy tents, puppet theatres, wigwams); - filled soft toys with a pile surface or textile surface but excluding soft bodied dolls with heads and limbs made entirely from non-textile polymeric material. Note: Additional requirements for flammability of electrical toys are in EN 50088 'Safety of electrical toys' (in preparation).
