This document provides more detailed and more technical background information relating to this topic of the sixth call for proposals under the specific programme for standards, measurements and testing (SMT), 1994-1998. A research programme is to be initiated with the aim of developing a test method and criteria to assess whether children are able to bite off parts of a product. The test methods shall take into account available information in public literature, in particular in the fields of anthropometry and odontology. The method shall be validated, reproducible and as simple as possible. By validation it shall be demonstrated that the test is able to simulate real life situations. Reproducibility shall be demonstrated in a multi-laboratory trial.
