This Guide establishes basic safety principles for technical bodies preparing national and international standards for products which are intended specifically for use by children; these principles should also apply to products with which children are likely to come into contact. The following aspects are considered: ergonomic considerations, toxicity, flammability and thermal injuries, ingestion and inhalation of foreign bodies, mechanical hazards and construction features, electrical safety, radiation, marking and labelling, packaging, marketing. Annex A includes a list of possible preventive measures for specific types of product-related accidents.
