Children's nightwear standard

To help prevent burns and injuries, all children's nightwear must have a fire hazard information label.

About the standard

All new and used children's nightwear covered by the standard must have a fire hazard information label.

The fire hazard label:

  • should be easy to see
  • must be on the inside back neck of a top or one-piece garment or, in pants, at the waist, waistband or top of the back seam
  • must have fire hazard and size information clearly visible on the face side of the label
  • must be permanently fixed on the nightwear
  • is white for low fire hazard fabrics and those that are snug fitting, or red for fabrics with a higher fire risk.
