1.1 This consumer safety specification covers all flame-producing consumer products commonly known as cigarette lighters, pipe lighters, and cigar lighters and such similar devices as defined in 3.1.9. Matches are specifically excluded from this safety specification; flame-producing products intended solely for igniting apparatus other than cigars, pipes, and cigarettes, including products covered by Specification F2201, are also specifically excluded from this safety specification. Lighters are specifically not intended for use as a candle, flashlight, or for other uses requiring an extended burn time.

1.2 This specification establishes requirements for lighters to ensure a reasonable degree of safety for normal use or reasonably foreseeable misuse of such lighters by users.

1.3 Lighters, being flame-producing devices, can, as do all flame sources, present a potential hazard to the consumer. This specification cannot eliminate all hazards, but is intended to minimize potential hazards of lighters to users.

1.4 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.

1.5  The following precautionary caveat pertains only to the test methods portion, Section 8, of this specification: This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

1.6  This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
