Lighters with child-resistant Device A Must from June 2004 05.08.2003

Tokai Europe welcomes the legislation to improve consumer protection

Many lighters currently available on the market are potentially dangerous for the consumer. The reason being that there is no legal regulation with minimum requirements for lighters, as compliance to date with the valid ISO standard 9994:2002 was on a voluntary basis only. This will soon change. The European Commission has decided that, in the framework of the General Product Safety Directive, the existing international standards are binding by law for each product, for which no legal requirements are currently defined. This also applies to lighters!

The Commission will assign a compulsory status to two safety standards:

? The DIN EN ISO 9994:2002 for the general safety standards which a lighter must fulfil
? The DIN EN 13869 as the specification of the standards for a child-proof device

With these standards, manufacturers and importers are obliged to bring onto the market only safe, certified lighters which offer sufficient protection against misuse by children.

A child-resistant device is a mechanism in the lighter, which makes it considerably more difficult for children to successfully ignite. The conditions for this are clearly defined in the standard EN 13869.

Tokai Europe GmbH expressly welcomes this legislation to give consumer protection a better legal basis and to ban unsafe lighters from the market. Tokai will start therefore to supply child-resistant lighters in January 2004 – both flint and piezo lighters.
