This document specifies safety requirements relating to materials, construction, performance, packaging and labelling of soother holders (see B.1).
It includes test methods for the mechanical and chemical requirements specified.
This document is intended to provide safety requirements for soother holders. All products that allow the attachment of a soother intended for babies and young children with any other product are included in the scope. The soother holder has a holding device at one end for the soother, a garment fastener that attaches to any other product, e.g. the child’s garment and a connecting device linking these parts. The safety requirements of these other products cannot be considered in this document.
Where a soother holder is considered to have significant play value, the soother holder is expected to meet the safety requirements for toys as stated in the Toy Directive 2009/48/EC [6] in addition to those in this document. The addition of decorations or providing animal shaped fasteners does not automatically make the soother holder a toy. Where there is doubt concerning the classification of a soother holder as a toy, advice can be sought from an EU Toy Notified Body or the Member State’s Competent Authority for toys (see B.2).

This document specifies requirements for the safety of removable cot duvet covers, used in the child’s sleeping environment (i.e. not under supervision), and designed to envelop a cot duvet when sleeping in a cot or similar product (e.g. crib/cradle) in which a child is contained. This document specifies requirements for removable cot duvet covers suitable for children up to 36 months.
The requirements for cot duvets are covered in EN 16779-1.
Some of the requirements in this document are not suitable for articles used by hospitals when nursing sick children. These include:
— openings for access for tubing to the patient or monitoring devices to monitor the patient;
— use of fastenings which may not be durable to industrial laundry processing used by hospitals.
If a part of the cot duvet cover is designed to offer additional functions (e.g. play function), in addition to the following requirements, this part will be subjected to safety requirements related to relevant standards (see B.1).
