ISO 22702:2003 gives a consumer-safety specification covering all flame-producing consumer products commonly known as utility lighters (also known as grill lighters, fireplace lighters, lighting rods or gas matches), and similar devices. Matches are specifically excluded from the safety specification; flame-producing products intended for igniting cigars, pipes and cigarettes are also specifically excluded from the safety specification.
