Seminar - Safety of Children's Clothing
Posted by: NCWA 19 July 2017

A seminar on Cords and Drawstrings / Mechanical Safety of Childrenswear takes place on Tuesday 12th September.

The third version of BS EN14682, the European Cords and Drawstrings Standard, was published in December 2014 having been redrafted and agreed by the European Standards Working Group on the Safety of Childrenswear (for which NCWA provides the Secretariat).


European Technical Report CEN TR16792 Safety of children’s clothing - Recommendations for the design and manufacture of children’s clothing- Mechanical Safety was also published in December 2014.


Much of the latter is similar to BS7907, the Code of Practice for Mechanical Safety, but it is vital that you know what it recommends, because of the General Product Safety Regulations, which make it obligatory for you to make and sell safe products.


NCWA’s seminars give an introduction to the Standards process, as well as an outline of the Standards, BS EN14682, Technical Report TR16792 and BS7907.


Places at the Seminars are limited, so please contact Michelle at the NCWA office on 020 7843 9488 or email for a booking form or further information.


This is a members' only seminar - if you would like more information about joining please call or email the NCWA office.
