Legal stuff for baby items

(Cherrelle Camish) #1

Can anyone tell me if there are any special rules or regulations when it comes to making dribble bibs and baby blankets. Do they need a CE Mark? Any information I’ve found so far regarding CE marking has been confusing. Also is there anything I need to be aware of for making blankets for adults? I haven’t actually started selling yet. I want to make sure I’m doing everything by the book before I get started.

I’ve been making bits and bobs for gifts for my friends for a while now and really want to take it a step further. As you can probably tell I’m a bit nervous! Any advice is much appreciated.

Thank you!! :smiley:

Childrens and babies toys need to be CE marked but as far as I know this doesn’t apply to blankets and bibs although there may be other regulations regarding fire safety and chemical leeching. A phone call to your local trading standards office would be worth a try.
