Dv#: Dv1
Standard: EN 71–1: 2014 + A1: 2018 | Safety of toys — Part 1: Mechanical and physical properties
Clause/Method:
4.11 Mouth-actuated toys and other toys intended to be put in the mouth

8.17.2 Durability of mouth-actuated toys (Other mouth-actuated toys)

Standard:
AS/NZS ISO 8124–1: 2019 Safety of toys —Part 1: Safety aspects related to mechanical and physical properties
ISO 8124–1: 2018 Safety of toys —Part 1: Safety aspects related to mechanical and physical properties
Clause/Method:
4.20 Mouth-actuated toys
5.20 Durability of mouth-actuated toys

Deviation:The volume of the cylinder is 355 cm³, which is outside the specified range of 295 ± 10 cm³ but is acceptable as the extra volume makes the test more onerous*.

Dv#: Dv2
Standard: ASTM F963-17 Standard Consumer Safety Specification for Toy Safety
Clause/Method:
4.6.2 Mouth-actuated toys
8.13 Mouth-actuated toys
Deviation: The volume of the cylinder is 355 cm³, which is outside the specified range of 300 ± 10 cm³ but is acceptable as the extra volume makes the test more onerous*.

Dv#: Dv3
Standard: EN 1400: 2013 + A2: 2018 | Child use and care articles — Soothers for babies and young children — Safety requirements and test methods
Clause/Method:
5.1 Shield template
8.3 Shield
8.7 Knobs, plugs and/or covers made from non-flexible materials
8.8 Rings, knobs, plugs and/or covers made of flexible materials
Deviation: The Shore D hardness of the shield template is 80 ± 1.281 (Instantaneous) or 78 ± 1.342 (15 seconds), both of which may fall outside the required 80 – 90 Shore D. This is acceptable as a softer material is considered to make the tests more onerous*.

Dv#: Dv4
Standard: EN 1400: 2013 + A2: 2018 | Child use and care articles — Soothers for babies and young children — Safety requirements and test methods
Clause/Method:
5.4 Cutting board
9.2 Puncture resistance
9.3 Tear resistance
Deviation: The Shore D hardness of the cutting board is 74 ± 1.281 (Instantaneous), which falls outside the required 70 ± 5 Shore D. This is acceptable as a harder board is considered to make the puncture tests more onerous*.

Dv#: Dv5
Standard: EN 1400: 2013 + A2: 2018 | Child use and care articles — Soothers for babies and young children — Safety requirements and test methods
Clause/Method:
5.5 Bite endurance jaws
9.5 Bite endurance of elastomeric components
Deviation: The equivalent Rockwell C hardness of the upper and lower bite endurance jaws are 63 and 63.5 respectively, which falls outside of the required 45 to 50 Rockwell C. This is acceptable as harder jaws are considered to make the bite test more onerous*.

 

*More onerous: where the deviation is more onerous, this means that where an item complies with the clause it exceeds the requirement within the clause in the standard. Should an item be deemed to fail to comply with the above clauses then it maybe that a further assessment at another UL location would result in a passing result.
