Textile child care articles - Safety requirements and test methods for children's cot duvets - Part 1: Duvet (excluding duvet covers)

This European Standard specifies requirements for the safety of children's cot duvets, excluding
removable duvet covers, used in the child’s sleeping environment (i.e. not under supervision), and
designed to provide sufficient warmth when sleeping in a cot or similar product (e.g. crib/cradle) in
which a child is contained. This document specifies requirements for cot duvets suitable for children up
to 36 months. Cot duvets with permanent decorative outer fabrics also known as cot quilts or coverlet
are also in the scope.
NOTE The informative Annex E lists topics of further investigations which might lead to necessary
improvement of the safety requirements of children's cot duvets.
The requirements for removable cot duvet covers are excluded from this document and are covered in
EN 16779-2.
If a part of the children's cot duvet is designed to offer additional function (e.g. play function), in
addition of the following requirements, this part will be subjected to safety requirements related to
relevant standards (see A.1).

Diese Europäische Norm legt Anforderungen an die Sicherheit von Kinderbettdecken, ausgenommen abziehbare Bettbezüge, fest, die im Schlafumfeld des Kindes (d. h. nicht beaufsichtigt) verwendet werden und dafür gestaltet sind, dem in einem Kinderbett oder in einem ähnlichen Produkt (z. B. Krippe/Wiege) schlafenden Kind ausreichend Wärme zu bieten. Dieses Dokument legt Anforderungen an Kinderbettdecken für Kinder im Alter bis zu 36 Monaten fest. In den Anwendungsbereich fallen auch Kinderbettdecken mit dauerhaftem dekorativem Bezug, auch bekannt als Steppdecke oder Tagesdecke.
ANMERKUNG   Im informativen Anhang E sind Themen zu weiteren Untersuchungen aufgeführt, die zur notwendigen Verbesserung der sicherheitstechnischen Anforderungen an Kinderbettdecken führen können.
Die Anforderungen an abziehbare Kinderbettbezüge sind von diesem Dokument ausgenommen und werden in EN 16779 2 behandelt.
Wenn ein Teil des Kinderschlafsacks so gestaltet ist, dass er eine zusätzliche Funktion bietet (z.B. Spielfunktion), unterliegt dieser Teil zusätzlich zu den folgenden Anforderungen auch den sicherheitstechnischen Anforderungen der zutreffenden Normen.

Articles textiles de puériculture - Exigences de sécurité et méthodes d’essai pour les couettes pour lit d’enfant - Partie 1 : Couette (excluant les housses de couette)

Le présent projet de Norme européenne spécifie les exigences pour la sécurité des couettes pour lit d’enfant, à l’exclusion des housses de couette amovibles, utilisées dans l’environnement de sommeil de l’enfant (autrement dit hors surveillance) et conçues pour apporter une chaleur suffisante pendant le sommeil dans un lit d’enfant ou un produit similaire (berceau par exemple) dans lequel l’enfant est installé. Le présent document spécifie les exigences relatives aux couettes pour lit d’enfant adaptées aux enfants jusqu’à 36 mois. Les couettes pour lit d’enfant munies d’étoffes extérieures décoratives permanentes, aussi appelées couvertures piquées pour lit d’enfant ou couvre-lits, entrent également dans le domaine d’application.
NOTE   L’Annexe E, informative, présente des pistes de recherches complémentaires susceptibles de faire évoluer les exigences de sécurité des couettes pour lit d’enfant.
Le présent document ne traite pas des exigences concernant les housses de couette amovibles pour lit d’enfant. Celles-ci sont traitées dans le prEN 16779 2 (en préparation).
Si une partie d’une couette pour lit d’enfant est conçue pour permettre une fonction supplémentaire (fonction de jouer par exemple), en plus des exigences suivantes, cette partie sera soumise aux exigences de sécurité des normes correspondantes (voir A.1).

EN 16779-1:2018 (E) 4 European foreword This document (EN 16779-1:2018) has been prepared by Technical Committee CEN/TC 248 “Textiles and textile products”, the secretariat of which is held by BSI. This European Standard shall be given the status of a national standard, either by publication of an identical text or by endorsement, at the latest by February 2019, and conflicting national standards shall be withdrawn at the latest by February 2019. Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject of patent rights. CEN shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights. This document has been prepared under a mandate given to CEN by the European Commission and the European Free Trade Association. Following the publication and implementation of this document in CEN member countries, it has been agreed by CEN TC 248 that there should be an 18 month transition period from the date of availability to allow manufacturers to develop and produce garments that conform to the standard. This period is also to allow the supply chain, from manufacturer through to the consumer, to be cleared of non-conforming children's cot duvets. EN 16779 is composed with the following parts: — Textile child care articles — Safety requirements and test methods for children's cot duvets — Part 1: Duvet (excluding duvet covers) [the present document; currently at Formal Vote stage]; — Textile child care use articles — Safety requirements and test methods for children's cot duvets —Part 2: Duvet covers (excluding duvets) [currently in preparation]. According to the CEN-CENELEC Internal Regulations, the national standards organisations of the following countries are bound to implement this European Standard: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey and the United Kingdom. SIST EN 16779-1:2018

EN 16779-1:2018 (E) 5 Introduction The European Commission Mandate M/497, followed by Product and Service safety in the Directorate-General Health and Consumers, under the title “Standardisation mandate to CEN, CENELEC and ETSI on the safety of child-care articles; Cluster 2- risks in the sleeping environment; Mattresses for cots, cot bumpers, suspended beds for children, duvets for children, sleep bags for children”, issued on 2011-10-20 and accepted by CEN/BT on 2011-12-20, requested that CEN develop standards or specifications including safety requirements and test methods, warnings and instructions to adult users in order to address the possible hazard posed by these products. The aim of this European Standard is to minimize the main risks posed by products in the sleep environment of babies and young children, such as: — internal asphyxiation (choking); — entrapment; — hyperthermia (overheating); — strangulation; — external asphyxiation (suffocation); — flammability; — injuries due to ingestion of small parts; — injuries due to chemicals. For the development of this document, attention was paid to: — the child’s stages of development (age, height, weight, ability, etc.); cot duvets were studied in relation to children up to 3 years of age; — the intended or foreseeable use of the cot duvet, bearing in mind a child’s behaviour; such behaviour exposes children to injury in ways that differ from those of adults, making children a particularly vulnerable group in society; — the hazard presented by the cot duvet in the circumstances under which the cot duvet and the child come into contact with each other. IMPORTANT — In order to comply with the essential safety requirements, this document is hazard based. As this document only deals with a particular textile child-care article, i.e. children's cot duvets, design characteristics have been specified only when necessary in order to introduce inherently safe design. These characteristics have been specified in a manner which allows compliance to be checked by interested parties, from designers to market surveillance authority officers. SIST EN 16779-1:2018

EN 16779-1:2018 (E) 6 1 Scope This European Standard specifies requirements for the safety of children's cot duvets, excluding removable duvet covers, used in the child’s sleeping environment (i.e. not under supervision), and designed to provide sufficient warmth when sleeping in a cot or similar product (e.g. crib/cradle) in which a child is contained. This document specifies requirements for cot duvets suitable for children up to 36 months. Cot duvets with permanent decorative outer fabrics also known as cot quilts or coverlet are also in the scope. NOTE The informative Annex E lists topics of further investigations which might lead to necessary improvement of the safety requirements of children's cot duvets. The requirements for removable cot duvet covers are excluded from this document and are covered in EN 16779-2. If a part of the children's cot duvet is designed to offer additional function (e.g. play function), in addition of the following requirements, this part will be subjected to safety requirements related to relevant standards (see A.1). 2 Normative references The following documents are referred to in the text in such a way that some or all of their content constitutes requirements of this document.
