for disposable and novelty cigarette lighters.CPSC regulations implementing this standard, which requires all models of such lighters to be resistant to operation by children younger than 5 years of age, prescribe requirements for a reasonable testing program to support certificates of compliance. Manufacturers and importers must submit a description of each model of lighter, results of surrogate qualification tests for compliance with the standard, and other information before the introduction of each model of lighter into commerce. Manufacturers, importers and private labelers must also establish and maintain records to demonstrate successful completion of all required tests to support the certificates of compliance they issue.
