Child use and care articles - Soother holder - Safety requirements and test methods

active, Most Current
Organization: CEN
Publication Date: 1 October 2007
Status: active
Page Count: 56
ICS Code (Equipment for children): 97.190
scope:

This European Standard specifies safety requirements relating to the materials, construction, performance, packaging and labelling of soother holders (see B.1).

It includes test methods for the mechanical and chemical requirements specified.

All products that are intended to connect a soother for babies and young children with any other product are included in the scope of this European Standard.

This European Standard is intended to provide safety requirements for soother holders which are generally comprised of a strap with the holder at one end which retains the soother whilst the other end has a clasp that attaches to the child's garment.

Where a soother holder has been classified as a toy or considered to have significant play value then the soother holder will have to meet the essential safety requirements for toys as stated in the Toy Directive (88/378/EEC) in addition to those in this European Standard. The addition of decorations or providing animal shaped fasteners should not automatically make the soother holder a toy; however the addition of a toy component to the soother holder will require that both the soother holder and the toy meet the essential safety requirements as stated in the Toy Directive. Where there is doubt concerning classification of a soother holder as a toy then advice should be sought from an EU Toy Notified Body or the Member State's Competent Authority for toys (see B.2).
