A product has to comply with all applicable mandatory standard, plus any committed performance declarations.

According to textile labelling requirement, textile products have to declare the “product standard” and product grade, which would normally contain another set of requirements.

Despite each “product standard” may itself be voluntary (with “/T” which means recommended in Chinese), the declaration is a market norm and makes the declared set of product standard becomes mandatory to some extent.

To put it simple, the minimum compliance would be safety standard + declared product standard.

Safety requirement of category A > category B > category C.
The minimal requirement for skin contact textile is category B, and that for non-skin contact textile is category C.
A stricter standard can be declared on your product, say, you can declare category B for a non-skin contact textile product, but NOT vice versa.

When worn or used, a skin contact product has its surface area in direct contact of human skin. If only a minor part is in skin contact or no contact, the product is classified as indirect skin contact.

Skin contact examples: Underwear, shirts, skirts, trousers, socks, bed sheets, duvet covers, towels, swimsuits, hats.

Non-skin contact examples: Overclothes, curtains, bed linen, wall cloth.
