Children's nightwear – information for traders

We have produced this fact sheet to help traders understand their obligations when supplying new or used children’s nightwear.

This product safety standard intends to help reduce the risk of children being injured if their nightwear accidentally catches on fire. It requires all new and used clothing suitable for children to wear as nightwear to be made of fabric that is less likely to burn or to have a fire hazard information label. Clothing made from fabrics that are too highly flammable must not be supplied.

This fact sheet covers:

  • who must comply with the product safety standard
  • what items of clothing are defined as “children’s nightwear” and “limited daywear”
  • the fire hazard information labels
  • what can happen if a trader supplies nightwear that does not comply with the product safety standard
  • where to get a copy of the standard.
