The health quality criteria for the evaluation of soothers for babies and young children have been developed and the analytical procedures were collected and indicated for the evaluation purposes. They include:
• sensory analysis
• global migration
• migration of metals (Sb, As, Ba, Cd, Pb, Cr, Hg, Se) to 0,07 M HC1
• analysis of volatile compounds
• chemical demand for oxigen
• presence of reaction accelerators
• presence of antioxidans
The requirements concerning mechanical and chemical parameters and also general safety of the product have been developed and the procedures for the conformity checking of these parameters, based on Polish Standard and the draft project of European Standard EN 14000 series concerning soothers for babies and small children have also been presented. These criteria have been accepted by the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare as suitable for issuing of health certificates for placing on the market as well as for the current sanitary surveillance of soothers taken from the market. The criteria will be obligatory until the EN 1400 Standards come into force being introduced into Polish legislation.
