Flammability Requirements for Textile Products in Canada

Author: Date :2019-08-23 Views: order
Textile products manufactured, imported, advertised or sold in Canada are subject to the CCPSA and must meet the flammability requirements set out in the Textile Flammability Regulations.
In addition to the product-specific requirements noted in this document, it is prohibited to manufacture, import, advertise or sell any consumer product that is a "danger to human health or safety" as defined in the CCPSA .
The onus is on industry to comply with the legislation.
The Consumer Product Safety Program administers and enforces the CCPSA and the regulations made under it. Enforcement actions taken by Product Safety Officers on noncompliant products depend on the degree of hazard associated with noncompliance, and include commitment to product correction by industry, negotiation with industry for the voluntary removal of these products from the market, seizure and/or prosecution under the CCPSA. Any person that manufactures, imports, advertises, or sells noncompliant products that result in property damage, injury or death may also be subject to legal liability.
Flammability Requirements for Textile Products
Under the Textile Flammability Regulations, textile products refer to all consumer products made in whole or in part of textile fibres, other than children's sleepwear, dolls, plush toys, soft toys, cribs, cradles and bassinets, playpens for children, carpets, carpeting, carpet tiles, mats, matting, rugs, tents, mattresses, as well as expansion gates and expandable closures for children, which must comply with different legislative requirements. Textile products include such items as fabric, drapery, outerwear and daywear.
Flammability requirements for textile products have been in effect since 1971. These products, when tested in accordance with the Canadian General Standards Board standard CAN/CGSB 4.2 No. 27.5, entitled Textile Test Methods - Flame Resistance - 45° Angle Test - One Second Flame Impingement, as amended from time to time, must have a flame spread time of one of the following:
greater than 3.5 seconds, if the product does not have a raised fibre surface; or
greater than 4 seconds, if the product has a raised fibre surface and exhibits ignition or fusion of its base fibres.
