Children's sleepwear imported to the United States is detected as a hidden danger

Recently, the Wujiang Inspection and Quarantine Bureau discovered that the flame-retardant properties of the fabrics of American children's pajamas exported by an enterprise in the area were not qualified. The inspectors firstly investigated the reasons for the non-conformity and found that the company did not know about the flame-retardant safety regulations of the related children's pajamas in the United States. Therefore, they did not request the flame-retardant properties of the fabrics during the procurement and inspection, resulting in unqualified products. According to the statistics of the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), in the United States, a total of 22 batches of children's clothing were recalled in 2011, of which 5 were unqualified because of the flame retardant performance of children's sleepwear, which accounted for 22.7% of the total batch.

The United States flame-retardant safety regulations specify three levels of combustion for textiles. The first level is the general combustion characteristics, the second level is the medium combustion characteristics, and the third level is the rapid and intense combustion. These kinds of textiles are regarded as dangerous and flammable. Due to the rapid and fierce combustion of such textiles, they are considered in trade. Not suitable for clothing, especially children's pajamas, the burning rate is too fast or melted after burning, easily lead to children burns, burns, and even life-threatening. The US Consumer Safety Commission (CPSC) stipulates that children's pajamas must meet the requirements of the 16CFR1615 and 1616 regulations. That is, after the fabrics of children's pajamas are required to be tested by the vertical method, the average damage length of the five samples should not exceed 17.8 cm. The length of the individual samples should not exceed the length. 25.4 cm, afterburning time is less than 10 seconds. In addition, the United States also stipulates that children's clothing should be accompanied by a durable label, and the label should indicate that certain reagents or treatments will cause the flame retardancy to decrease.

The inspection and quarantine department reminded relevant US-based children's wear enterprises: First, companies should pay attention to the relevant laws and regulations of the exporting country, and communicate with the inspection and quarantine authorities in time to understand the latest changes in laws and regulations, so as to avoid foreign notifications and exports due to failure to meet the standards of product safety and safety rings. Return, trade claims, etc. Second, the company shall strengthen the management of suppliers of apparel raw materials, establish a record-based evaluation system for suppliers, and require suppliers to provide safety inspection reports and conformity declarations issued by authoritative inspection agencies on a regular basis. At the source, it is necessary to eliminate unsafe factors. Third, the company must carry out risk pre-judgment review of the first prototype design, strictly control the product development process, and reduce the loss of quality due to design mistakes or violation of the French technical regulations.
