Standard Specification for Fire Safety for Candle Accessories
|Publication Date:||1 May 2007|
|ICS Code (Miscellaneous domestic and commercial equipment):||97.180|
This specification prescribes requirements for candle accessories to help ensure a reasonable degree of safety for normal use, thereby improving personal safety and reducing fires, deaths, and injuries.
This specification is not intended to replace other safety practices such as adult supervision, close monitoring of product when in use, and fire detection, alarm, or suppression systems.
Candles burn with an open flame. Precautions must be taken to ensure that the flame does not ignite combustible materials and initiate a larger fire. To that end, this specification establishes minimum safety requirements for candle accessories.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
This specification is used to measure and describe the response of materials, products, or assemblies to heat and flame under controlled conditions, but does not by itself incorporate all factors required for fire hazard or fire risk assessment of the materials, products, or assemblies under actual fire conditions.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
