This document defines a test method for security of attachment of functional and decorative metal mechanically applied press fasteners to children's clothing including for example gloves, hats, scarves, hosiery, ties, and textile belts.
IMPORTANT: Eyelets and rivets cannot be tested by this method as the integrity of the component when attached to textile fabrics is destroyed in the gripping action. Eyelets and rivets are assessed as described in CEN/TS 17394-4:2021.
This document does not apply to:
a) child care articles;
b) shoes, boots and similar footwear;
c) toys (see NOTE 2);
d) other articles sold with clothing.
NOTE 1 The above items are covered by other CEN Technical Committees and as such are out of the scope of this document.
NOTE 2 Disguise costumes including carnival costumes are examples of clothing which are also toys and fall within the scope of the Toy Safety Directive.
The scope of this document is limited to metal mechanically applied components. Work is in progress to develop standards for other garment components.
