Children's pajamas imported into the US market must meet US regulatory requirements.
US testing regulations for children's pajamas require:
1 CPSIA (total lead, phthalates)
2 16 CFR PART 1610 Standard for the Flammability of Clothing Textiles.
3 16 CFR PART 1615 OR 16 CFR PART 1616
On August 14, 2008, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008 (CPSIA) was officially implemented, in which Article 102 stipulates that after 90 days of the implementation of the Act, children's products must be compulsorily certified by a third-party certification agency before they can enter the United States. market or for sale in the US market.

2. Flammability requirements These two standards specify specific test methods and flammability requirements. Children's pajamas are required to be tested in accordance with the specified procedure, with the average charcoal length of 5 samples not exceeding 17.8 cm (7.0 in.) and no sample having a charcoal length of 25.4 cm (10 in.). For children's pajamas that need to be washed in use, they should be washed in accordance with the prescribed procedures, and then the combustion performance should be determined.
