Child use and care articles - Carry cots and stands - Safety requirements and test methods

This European Standard specifies safety requirements and test methods for products which are intended for the purpose of carrying a child in a lying position by means of handle(s) and for stands which may be used in conjunction with these products. The safety requirements are intended to assure that the carrying and sleeping functions do not present hazards to the child when the product is used in a normal way taking into account the foreseeable behaviour of the child.
These products are intended for a child who cannot sit unaided, roll over or push up on its hands and knees, with a maximum weight of 9 kg. Hereafter, in this European Standard these articles are called "carry cots" and include all types of carry cots with rigid or soft sides as well as moses baskets and any similar articles. Any other functions of the product shall comply with relevant European Standards.
This European Standard has not considered the requirements of children with special needs.

The measurement of the minimum height shall be carried out, longitudinally with the test bar B (5.6) placed across the ends of the carry cot and laterally with the test bar B (5.6) placed across the sides of the carry cot. 7.1.2.3 Effectiveness of the retaining function of the sides of non-rigid carry cots 7.1.2.3.1 Requirement When tested in accordance with 7.1.2.3.2 the test mass shall not roll out of the carry cot. 7.1.2.3.2 Test for effectiveness of the retaining function of the sides Place the carry cot, with the mattress supplied or recommended by the manufacturer on the bottom, on a 15° slope with its longer side perpendicular to the slope. Retain the base of the carry cot on the slope so it cannot tip over without having any effect on the structure of the sides and without preventing the free movement of the test mass (5.2). If any, the apron shall be opened as far as possible or removed. Place the 9 kg test mass (5.2) in the geometric centre of the carry cot. Allow the test mass to roll freely. Record if the test mass rolls out of the carry cot. 7.1.2.4 Overall height of a carry cot with flexible handles 7.1.2.4.1 Requirement The maximum overall height of the carry cot measured when tested in accordance with 7.1.2.4.2 shall be 520 mm. 7.1.2.4.2 Test for measurement of the total height of the carry cot The mattress as supplied or recommended in the instruction for use shall be fitted. Suspend the carry cot on the hooks of the dynamic test machine (Figure 7). Place the test mass (5.2) inside the carry cot. Measure the vertical distance between the base of the hook and the external face of the base of the carry cot (see Figure 10) ensuring that the base is essentially horizontal. SIST EN 1466:2015

Other restraint systems are not allowed. 7.2 Entrapment hazards 7.2.1 Requirements There shall be no open ended tubes and completely bounded circular openings within the protected volume of the carry cot between 7 mm and 12 mm when measured in accordance with 7.2.2, unless the depth is less than 10 mm. This requirement is not applicable to the restraint system. The size of the holes in mesh within the protected volume shall be less than 7 mm when measured in accordance with 7.2.2. When tested in accordance with 7.2.2 there shall be no holes and openings within the protected volume of the carry cot and at the attachment point of the handles greater than 65 mm. 7.2.2 Test method Check all holes and openings as defined in 7.2.1 within the protected volume, using the appropriate probe (see 5.3) of 7 mm, 12 mm or 65 mm, applying the appropriate force as given in Table 1.
