    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Specifies a size designation and size coding scheme for ready-made garments based on actual body measurements over underclothing. Body measurements are specified for four sizes in infants' clothing, and for six sizes (2-7) with common measurements for boys and girls. Two additional body measurement tables are included, one for boys and one for girls for sizes 8 to 18. Two methods are given for labelling standard coded sizes, one of which uses the ISO pictogram. The Standard also specifies similar methods for labelling non-coded sizes.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    The Standard sets out a system of designating and labelling the sizes of infants' and children's clothing. The control dimensions on which the size designation is based and the method of indicating these dimensions on the label are specified. The Standard also includes body measurement tables for standard coded sizes which meet the needs of a very high proportion of Australian infants and children. The size code number is linked with the control dimensions on the label and is a means of quickly identifying individual sizes.Size designation charts which specify the control dimensions related to each Standard size are also included.NOTE: To cover the complete range of schoolwear for girls and boys up to school leaving age, sizes 8 to 18 are included in the Standard.
