Safety of toys - Part 2: Flammability

This European Standard specifies the categories of flammable materials which are prohibited in all toys, and requirements concerning flammability of certain toys when they are subjected to a small source of ignition.
The test methods described in Clause 5 are used for the purposes of determining the flammability of toys under the particular test conditions specified. The test results thus obtained cannot be considered as providing an overall indication of the potential fire hazard of toys or materials when subjected to other sources of ignition.
This European Standard includes general requirements relating to all toys and specific requirements and methods of test relating to the following toys, which are considered as being those presenting the greatest hazard:
—   toys to be worn on the head: beards, moustaches, wigs, etc. made from hair, pile or material with similar features; masks; hoods, head-dresses, etc.; flowing elements of toys to be worn on the head, but excluding paper novelty hats of the type usually supplied in party crackers;
—   toy disguise costumes and toys intended to be worn by a child in play;
—   toys intended to be entered by a child;
—   soft-filled toys.
NOTE   Additional requirements for flammability of electric toys are specified in EN 62115.

Sicherheit von Spielzeug - Teil 2: Entflammbarkeit

Dieses Dokument legt die Kategorien entflammbarer Werkstoffe fest, deren Verwendung in allem Spielzeug verboten ist, und Anforderungen hinsichtlich der Entflammbarkeit bestimmten Spielzeugs, wenn es einer kleinen Zündquelle ausgesetzt wird.
Die in Abschnitt 5 beschriebenen Prüfverfahren werden zur Bestimmung der Entflammbarkeit von Spielzeug unter den festgelegten Prüfbedingungen angewendet. Die so erhaltenen Prüfergebnisse werden nicht dahingehend betrachtet, dass sie umfassende Angaben für die mögliche Brandgefährdung von Spielzeug oder Werkstoffen zur Verfügung stellen, wenn diese anderen Zündquellen ausgesetzt werden.
Dieses Dokument enthält allgemeine Anforderungen hinsichtlich allen Spielzeugs und besondere Anforderungen und Prüfverfahren für folgende Spielzeuge, die als am gefährlichsten angesehen werden:
— auf dem Kopf zu tragendes Spielzeug: Bärte, Schnurrbärte, Perücken usw. aus haarartigem Material oder fließenden Bestandteilen; Masken; Kopfhauben, Kopfschmuck usw.; Hüte aus Papier oder Karton ohne Verzierungen oder befestigte Elemente sind jedoch ausgenommen;

Introduction

This document aims at reducing, as far as possible, those hazards which are not evident to users; it does

not cover inherent hazards that are obvious to children or the persons in charge of them. Assuming that

the toys are used in the intended manner, they should not present any further hazard to children for

whom they are intended (according to the Directive 2009/48/EC “intended for use by” means that a

parent or supervisor shall reasonably be able to assume by virtue of the functions, dimensions and

characteristics of a toy that it is intended for use by children of the stated age group). Allowance should

also be made for foreseeable use, bearing in mind the behaviour of children who do not generally share

the same degree of care as the average adult user.

As a general rule, toys are designed and manufactured for particular ages of children. Their

characteristics are related to the age and stage of development of the children, and their use presupposes

certain aptitudes.

Accidents are frequently due to a toy either being given to a child for whom it is not intended or being

used for a purpose other than that for which it was designed. Great care should therefore be taken when

choosing a toy; account should be taken of the mental and physical development of the child who will be

using it.

The requirements of this document do not release parents or carers from their responsibility of

supervising the child while he or she is playing.
1 Scope

This document specifies the categories of flammable materials which are prohibited in all toys, and

requirements concerning flammability of certain toys when they are subjected to a small source of

ignition.

The test methods described in Clause 5 are used for the purposes of determining the flammability of toys

under the particular test conditions specified. The test results thus obtained are not considered as

providing an overall indication of the potential fire hazard of toys or materials when subjected to other

sources of ignition.

This document includes general requirements relating to all toys and specific requirements and methods

of test relating to the following toys, which are considered as being those presenting the greatest hazard:

— toys to be worn on the head: beards, moustaches, wigs, etc. made from pile or flowing elements;

masks; hoods, headdresses, etc.; However, paper and paperboard hats without embellishments or

attachments are excluded;
— toy disguise costumes and toys intended to be worn by a child in play;

— toys intended to be entered by a child and constructed from textiles and/or polymer sheets and films;

— soft-filled toys.

NOTE Additional requirements for flammability of electric toys are specified in EN 62115[2]

SIST EN 71-2:2021
EN 71-2:2020 (E)

but not to paper or paperboard hats unless they have embellishments or attachments that form flowing

elements.

When a product incorporates several features, for example a hat with an attached mask and hair, each

part shall be tested separately to the applicable clause relevant to that particular part of the toy.

Attachments which are used for the purpose of securing a mask, hat, etc., on the head (e.g. string, elastic,

plastic strap) shall not be tested (see A.3).

4.2.2 Beards, moustaches, wigs, etc., made from pile or flowing elements which protrude 50 mm

or more from the surface of the toy

When tested according to 5.2, the duration of flaming shall not be more than 2 s after the removal of the

test flame.

In addition, if ignition occurs, the maximum-burnt length of pile, or flowing elements shall not be:

a) more than 50 % of the greatest initial length, when the initial length was 150 mm or more, or;

b) more than 75 % of the greatest initial length, when the initial length was less than 150 mm.

When determining whether materials are required to be tested under 4.2.2, the distance by which the

material protrudes shall be measured without applying tension to the protruding part, e.g. curly hair is

not straightened. Plaits or braided hair shall be fully released and combed, where possible, before testing.

4.2.3 Beards, moustaches, wigs, etc., made from pile or flowing elements which protrude less

than 50 mm from the surface of the toy

Beards, moustaches, wigs, etc. made from pile or flowing elements which protrude 5 mm or less from the

surface of the toy are regarded as headdresses and are covered by 4.2.5.

When tested in accordance with 5.3 the duration of flaming shall not be more than 2 s after the removal

of the test flame, and the maximum distance between the upper edge of the burnt area and the point of

application of the test flame shall not be more than 70 mm.
4.2.4 Full or partial moulded head masks

When tested in accordance with 5.3, the duration of flaming shall not be more than 2 s after the removal

of the test flame. The maximum distance between the upper edge of the burnt area and the point of

application of the test flame shall not be more than 70 mm.

This requirement does not apply to moulded eye masks that neither cover the chin nor a cheek as they

are covered by 4.2.5.

4.2.5 Toys to be worn on the head (except those covered by 4.2.2 and 4.2.3), hoods, headdresses

including upward protruding items and masks not covered by 4.2.4 which partially or fully cover

the head (e.g. fabric and paperboard masks, eye masks, face masks), but excluding those items

covered by 4.3

When tested in accordance with 5.4, the rate of spread of flame of the test specimen shall not exceed

10 mm/s or the test specimen shall self-extinguish.

4.3 Toy disguise costumes and toys intended to be worn by a child in play (see A.4)

This requirement does not apply to separate toys to be worn on the head, which are supplied with a toy

disguise costume.

When tested in accordance with 5.5 parts of toy disguise costumes and toys intended to be worn by

children in play which contain loose stuffing which would fall out if tested in accordance with 5.4.1.2 shall

not exceed 30 mm/s rate of spread of flame or the test specimen shall self-extinguish.

---------------------- Page: 12 ----------------------
SIST EN 71-2:2021
EN 71-2:2020 (E)

This requirement does not apply to soft-filled parts which, when positioned in accordance with 5.5.3,

present a maximum unhindered vertical soft-filled height of 150 mm or less.

When tested in accordance with 5.4 all other toy disguise costumes and toys intended to be worn by a

child in play (and parts thereof), shall not exceed 30 mm/s rate of spread of flame or the test specimen

shall self-extinguish.

In all cases if the rate of spread of flame is between 10 mm/s and 30 mm/s, the appropriate component(s)

of the toy and the packaging shall be permanently marked with the following warning: “Warning. Keep

away from fire”.
4.4 Toys intended to be entered by a child (see A.5)
