Sleepwear qualifies as a tight-fitting sleepwear if it is designed for infants weighing up to 7 kilograms (kg). The Children’s Sleepwear: Flammability Requirement Guidelines (2016), amended from time to time, specify that the maximum chest circumference for infant sleepwear is 508 mm.

The change in policy is effective immediately.
