To allow for staggered implementation, there are some cases where a mandatory standard or ban prescribes different compliance dates for the manufacturing, importing and supply of a product. Manufacturers, importers and distributors should check for this detail in the mandatory standard before embarking on production, importation or distribution of these goods.
The requirements below are key requirements only. They may help to give suppliers a general idea of the detail they must look up in the regulation. This information may also assist consumers when they are choosing disposable cigarette lighters.
While we provide some advice on this page to help you understand aspects of the standard you can visually check, suppliers must not rely on this information as a complete guide to compliance.
While the mandatory standard includes features you can visually check, it also specifies testing to ensure disposable cigarette lighters meet requirements for performance. Suppliers need to organise this testing through specialist laboratories with the right skills, experience and equipment.
Supplying disposable cigarette lighters that fail to meet requirements of this mandatory standard can make you liable for product recalls and heavy fines. For more details, view Penalties and consequences.
