This specification has no requirements for those aspects of adult jewelry that present an inherent and recognized hazard as part of the function of jewelry.

1.3.3 Footwear (except as described in 3.1.1(q)), and

1.5 The following precautionary statement pertains only to the test methods portion of this specification: This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with jewelry use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

1.6 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
