This document provides requirements for security of attachment for clothing components that are considered as small parts such as buttons, press fasteners, rivets, sequins, diamantes (or pieces of these components) which fit entirely within the small parts cylinder without compression, for infants' clothing. Release of these small components from clothing is considered to present hazards of choking, swallowing, ingestion, inhaling (aspiration) or insertion into eyes, nose or ears for infants. This age group is particularly vulnerable as they often do not have the language skills to convey the accident to their carers. In older children and adults, incidents of accidental insertion or swallowing etc are significantly reduced, predominantly due to the ability of the child to remove the component themselves or to explain and obtain medical help. This document does not apply to: a) child care articles; b) shoes, boots and similar footwear; c) toys (see NOTE 2); d) other articles sold with clothing. NOTE 1 The above items are covered by other CEN Technical Committees and as such are out of the scope of this document. NOTE 2 Disguise costumes including carnival costumes are examples of clothing which are also toys and fall within the scope of the Toy Safety Directive.
