16 CFR Part 1610 Flammability for Clothing Textiles


US Consumer Products Safety Commission


16 CFR Part 1610


Flammability for Clothing Textiles


The purpose of this standard is to reduce danger of injury and loss of life by providing, on a national basis, standard methods of testing and rating the flammability of textiles and textile products for clothing use, thereby prohibiting the use of any dangerously flammable clothing textiles.


The standard provides methods of testing the flammability of clothing and textiles intended to be used for clothing, establishes three classes of flammability, sets forth the requirements which textiles shall meet to be classified, and warns against the use of those textiles which have burning characteristics unsuitable for clothing.

Please note:
SGS-IPS cannot sell or otherwise provide standards, specifications, or test procedures to third parties.
