Why should you use this published document?

It provides guidance on potential sources of bodily harm to children from the products that they use, or with which they’re likely to come into contact, even if the product was not specifically intended for use by children.

What’s changed since the last update?

This third edition cancels and replaces the second edition published in 2002 which was technically revised. The main changes are:

  • Close alignment of the title and scope with the title and scope of ISO/IEC Guide 51
  • Additional clarification that ISO/IEC Guide 50 is intended for standards developers, but that it can also be used by other stakeholders
  • Expansion of Clause 5 outlining the relationship between child development, behaviour and unintentional harm
  • New structure of Clause 7 on hazards and inclusion of new hazards that were not included in the previous edition
  • Addition of new Clause 8 dealing with the adequacy of safeguards
