From cot bumpers and duvets to sleep bags, join SGS’s complimentary webinar to discover the rules and regulations governing sleep products for children.

The bedrooms of young children are a nest of hazards – chemical, entrapment, small parts, strangulation, fire and thermal. In this webinar SGS experts will explore the standards and requirements that protect some of the most vulnerable consumers – young children – looking at test methods and highlighting hazards along the way.

Join SGS experts to explore:

  • Standard origins
  • General & common requirements
  • Specific requirements
  • Overview of RAPEX cases

This webinar will benefit retailers, brand owners, designers and manufacturers of children’s sleep products.
