The Children’s Sleepwear Regulation: New Interpretation for the Definition of Children’s Infant Sleepwear
Bureau Veritas recently received a new policy update from Health Canada for the interpretation for Infant Sleepwear sold in Canada.
Health Canada is amending its policy on infant sleepwear sizing to the following:
For sleepwear to be considered sleepwear designed for infants weighing up to 7 kg, it must have
• a chest circumference that is less than or equal to 508 mm; and
• a label stating in months the age of the child for whom it is intended; the age must be 9 months or younger.
This change in policy is effective immediately. Health Canada has confirmed that this policy is effective immediately.
Please note: This new policy allows sizing to be harmonized between both US and Canada for Infant styles only.
