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

This European Standard specifies safety requirements relating to the materials, construction, performance, packaging and labelling of soother holders (see B.1).
It includes test methods for the mechanical and chemical requirements specified.
All products that are intended to be used by a child to connect a soother with any other product are included in the scope of this European Standard.
This European Standard is intended to provide safety requirements for soother holders which are generally comprised of a strap with the holder at one end which retains the soother whilst the other end has a clasp that attaches to the child’s garment.
Where a soother holder has been classified as a toy or considered to have significant play value then the soother holder will have to meet the essential safety requirements for toys as stated in the Toy Directive (88/378/EEC) in addition to those in this European Standard. The addition of decorations or providing animal shaped fasteners should not automatically make the soother holder a toy; however the addition of a toy component to the soother holder will require that both the soother holder and the toy meet the essential safety requirements as stated in the Toy Directive. Where there is doubt concerning classification of a soother holder as a toy then advice should be sought from an EU Toy Notified Body or the Member State’s Competent Authority for toys (see B.2).

Artikel für Säuglinge und Kleinkinder - Schnullerhalter - Sicherheitstechnische Anforderungen und Prüfverfahren

In dieser Europäischen Norm werden Sicherheitsanforderungen an Werkstoffe, Bau, Ausführung, Verpackung
und Kennzeichnung von Schnullerhaltern festgelegt.
Sie enthält Prüfverfahren für die festgelegten mechanischen und chemischen Anforderungen.
Sämtliche Produkte, die dafür bestimmt sind, beim Kind den Schnuller mit einem anderen Produkt zu
verbinden, sind im Anwendungsbereich dieser Norm erfasst.
Es gibt einige Produkte, die für mehr als einen Zweck vorgesehen sind, z. B. könnte ein Schnullerhalter eine
Rassel oder ein Weichspielzeug aufnehmen. Andererseits könnte die Verbindungsschnur eine Kordel mit
dekorativ gefärbten Perlen haben. Jedes dieser Produkte sollte den Anforderungen der vorliegenden Norm
entsprechen. Sofern diese Produkte auch Spielzeug sind, sollte das Gesamtprodukt zusätzlich den
entsprechenden Anforderungen der EN 71 entsprechen.

La présente Norme européenne spécifie les exigences de sécurité relatives aux matériaux, à la fabrication, aux performances, à l'emballage et à l'étiquetage des attache sucettes.
Elle comprend des méthodes d'essai portant sur les exigences mécaniques et chimiques spécifiées.
Tous les produits destinés à être utilisés pour fixer une sucette à un autre produit entrent dans le cadre de la présente norme.
Certains produits ont plusieurs fonctions, par exemple, une attache sucette peut intégrer un hochet ou un jouet souple. Le lien peut également être assorti d'un rang de perles décoratives de couleur. Il convient que tous ces produits soient conformes aux exigences de la présente norme. Cependant, comme ces produits sont également des jouets, il convient que l'ensemble du produit satisfasse, en outre, aux exigences correspondantes de l'EN 71.
