BS 7907:2007 Code of practice for the design and manufacture of children's clothing to promote mechanical safety

When designing children’s clothing, it is essential to take into consideration the behaviour of children, whose need for exploration and challenge drives them to use items in new and different ways. One common factor children share is that they are unaware of cause and effect and are therefore substantially less cautious than adults in relation to hazards.

BS 7907 gives recommendations for the design and manufacture of children’s clothing to promote mechanical safety. This standard is applicable to clothing intended for children up
to 14 years of age.

BS 7907:2007 also gives recommendations on safety aspects of the packaging and display of children’s clothing, including guidance for retailers.

BS 7907:2007 is intended for use at all stages of the clothing supply chain, including use by designers, specifiers and manufacturers of children’s clothing. It is also intended to be used by importers, distributors and retailers to assist them in the selection of clothing that does not present a mechanical hazard.

This standard does not apply to:

  • child care articles, such as bibs, nappies and soother holders
  • footwear, such as boots, shoes and slippers
  • toys and other items sold with the clothing

BS 7907:2007 supersedes BS 7907:1997, which is withdrawn.

NotesThe existence of both BS 7907 and TR 16792:2014 is confusing. It was withdrawn because the TCI/66 Apparel and Interior Textiles committee considered it in the 2017 Systematic Review and decided to withdraw BS 7907 for this reason.
