Export of Children's Pajamas is More Demanding

Recently, the American clothing and Footwear Association (AAFA) claimed that because a large number of children's pajamas with potential quality hazards are sold in the United States, it requires the consumer product safety commission to strictly implement the flammability standards of children's pajamas in the current U.S. Federal Flammable Fabrics Act.

Children's pajamas are becoming the key words of regulations and supervision in various countries due to the particularity of the objects used, especially the flame retardant standard, which has become a thorny problem in the export of children's pajamas. In addition to the United States, Australia has recently revised the new voluntary standard for children's pajamas and formulated the mandatory regulatory standard of "reducing the fire risk of children's pajamas and some daily clothes", And specific safety and labeling requirements. In addition, the United Kingdom, New Zealand, South Korea and other countries have also issued relevant laws and regulations.

According to the current regulations of the United States, the flammability standard of children's pajamas exported to the United States is higher than that of ordinary textiles, and all flammability requirements of clothing cloth and polyethylene plastic film are required. At the same time, children's pajamas should be moderately tight, and the maximum size of chest, waist, hip, upper arm, thigh, wrist and ankle should not exceed the regulation. Do not have lace, decals, ribbons and other fabric accessories or edging that exceed 6.25 inches in length.

According to the statistics of China's wto-tbt notification and consultation center, in the first ten months of last year, 33 batches of children's pajamas in China were recalled overseas because they did not meet the relevant standards. Therefore, Shishi Office of Quanzhou entry exit inspection and Quarantine Bureau reminds enterprises that on the one hand, they should focus on understanding the label, design, structure, performance and other requirements of children's pajamas standards of various countries, overcome the technical problems of detection, and especially do a good job in flame retardant combustion performance test. On the other hand, it is necessary to strictly control the product development process, do a good job in the first sample design and risk assessment and review of safety projects, and clear the barriers for export by selecting qualified suppliers.
