ICS Code (Ignitability and burning behaviour of materials and products): 13.220.40
ICS Code (Home textiles. Linen): 97.160
scope:

1. Scope

1.1 This test method evaluates the relative flammability of textiles and garments intended for use in children's sleepwear. The procedures of this test method follow testing and laundering procedures used to evaluate the flammability of children's sleepwear contained in US Federal Regulations 16 CFR 1615 and 1616.

1.2 A textile used in children's sleepwear must be tested in its original state and after 50 laundering and drying cycles to assess the flame resistance of the textile relative to its use life.

1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard; inch-pound units are provided for information only.

1.4 This test method should be used to measure and describe the properties of materials, products, or assemblies in response to heat and flame under controlled laboratory conditions and should not be used to describe or appraise the fire hazard or fire risk of materials, products, or assemblies under actual fire conditions. However, the test results may be used as elements of a fire-risk assessment, which takes into, account all of the factors, which are pertinent factors to the potential fire hazard of a particular end use.

1.5 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 determines the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. Specific precautionary information is found in 8.5 and 9.5.
