The subject of this article is a real-life person, company, product, or creative work that has been mentioned "in-universe" in a canon source. The Harry Potter Wiki is written from the perspective that all information presented in canon is true (e.g., Hogwarts really exists), and, as such, details contained in this article may differ from real world facts.
EN1783:1997SAW is a British government safety standard, applying to the performance requirements, safety, and classification of matches. Blishen's Safety Matches, a product manufactured in the European Union since 1847, conformed to this regulation.
Behind the scenes
- EN1783:1997SAW is a real British safety standard. The reference to this standard on a prop matchbox in the film adaptation of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire is an anachronism, as the standard was established in 1997, and the scene in which Frank Bryce uses the matches is canonically set in 1994.
