Child Protection Features in Consumer Products

PROPOSED UL 4200

Scope

These requirements cover child-protective features in household products. The Standard will be divided into parts, with one part addressing protective features (for cell batteries for example) applicable to all household products and another part for products that have child-appealing features or toy-like features, which are not intended to be used as toys. These requirements do not cover toys and are not intended to satisfy regulatory obligations that may apply to children’s articles. These requirements also cover products specifically identified by the manufacturer for use by children.

Electric toys are covered by the Standard for Electric Toys, UL 696. Electric toy transformers are covered by the Standard for Toy Transformers, UL 697.
