ASTM F1816-18 Drawstrings on children’s upper outerwear- Reinstated!

 

As we already informed in our Eurofins News Flash September 2018 edition, the standard ASTM F1816-97(2009) “Standard Safety Specification for Drawstrings on Children's Upper outerwear” was inadvertently dropped because it did not pass its mandatory 5 years review on time (Withdrawn during 2018). 

As a consequence, ASTM activated the Work Item WK64790 to reinstate it as soon as possible without any technical changes because US and Canada regulations use very broadly this standard.

After approval of this work item, finally this standard has been published and reinstated as ASTM F1816-18 in December 2018.
