Organization: ISO
Publication Date: 15 August 2014
Status: active
Page Count: 26
ICS Code (Toys): 97.200.50
scope:

This part of ISO 8124 specifies the categories of flammable materials that are prohibited in all toys, and requirements concerning flammability of certain toys when they are subjected to a minor source of ignition.

The test methods described in Clause 5 are used for the purposes 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 of ISO 8124 includes general requirements relating to all toys and specific requirements and test methods relating to the following toys, which are considered as being those presenting the greatest hazard:

- toys intended to be worn on the head: beards, moustaches, wigs, etc. made from hair, pile or material that behaves in a similar manner to hair; masks; hoods, headdresses, etc.; flowing elements of toys to be worn on the head, but excluding paper novelty hats of the type usually supplied in party crackers (see A.4);

- toy disguise costumes and toys intended to be worn by a child in play (see A.5);

- toys intended to be entered by a child (see A.6);

- soft-filled toys (see A.7).

NOTE 1 Additional requirements for flammability of electric toys are specified in IEC 62115.

NOTE 2 There are very few accident data concerning the hazards associated with the flammability of toys.

NOTE 3 See A.2.
