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

General information

50.60     Oct 5, 2023



European Norm



This document specifies safety requirements relating to materials, construction, performance, packaging and labelling of soother holders.
NOTE 1 See B.1.
It includes test methods for the mechanical and chemical requirements specified.
This document covers products for children from birth to 36 months of age, alike the soothers to which these items are connected to.
This document is intended to provide safety requirements for soother holders. All products that allow the attachment of a soother intended for babies and young children to any other object are included in the scope. The soother holder has a holding device at one end for the soother, a garment fastener that attaches to any other product, e.g. the child’s garment and a connecting device linking these parts. The safety requirements of products that a soother holder attaches to are not considered in this standard.
Where a soother holder is considered to have significant play value, the soother holder is expected to meet the safety requirements for toys as stated in the Toy Directive 2009/48/EC [6] in addition to those in this document.
NOTE 2 See B.2.
