European ban on non child-resistant lighters


Since Tuesday 11th March the non child-resistant lighters will no longer be available on the market.

Non child-resistant lighters and novelty lighters have been banned from the European market and will no longer be able to be sold to consumers, following a Commission Decision from 2006.

This is definitely a positive step towards a better protection of our children. On this occasion, ANEC and BEUC published a joint press release.
