Children Cloth SaleSale of children's clothing
See the 2005 General Product Safety Guidelines for more information. In 1985, the NIGHTWARE (SAFETY) Regulations 1985 prohibited the delivery of children's sleepwear (with the exception of pajamas, baby clothing and bathrobes made of quilted cotton) that did not comply with the combustibility standards. You can find further information in the Guide to Safety Regulations.
There are no other special rules for the security of children's clothes apart from the nightwear-requirements. For all other issues of security, the 2005 General Rules on Consumer Products Security cover them. This legislation places a burden of accountability on companies to deliver safer goods. To assess the soundness of a given article, the court would take into account all public norms and code of conduct.
EN 14878 has some implications for these regulations and the BEIS leaflet on sleepwear security (at BERR time) should be used. BS EN 14862 aims to minimize the risks of unintentional jamming of strings or pull straps on children's clothes for children up to 14 years of age taking into consideration the following points:
On the basis of statistical data, serious injuries caused by strings and straps on children's clothes occur in two major groups according to the children's age: It is important when creating children's apparel to consider the behavior of children whose need for research and challenges leads them to use objects in new and different ways.
It is a shared fact that children are not aware of the cause and effect and are therefore much less careful about dangers than grown-ups. Designed for use at all levels of the apparel production process, this Technical Report is for use by designer, planner and manufacturer of children's apparel.
They will also be used by importer, distributor and retailer to help them choose clothes that are not dangerous. Designed for use at all levels of the apparel production process, this norm makes recommendations: NO strings or strings are allowed in this area.
