Toy Safety Directive

Year after year are toys on the top 3 of most recalled products. Bringing safe toys to market is a challenge for many retail organisations.

ANEC “the European consumer voice in standardization” and Toy Industries Europe (TIE) relaunched the toy safety campaign. Both organisations strive for more safety and awareness. Reminders on safe toys are always welcome, especially during the holiday season. This two-and-a-half minute video will refresh your memory with simple tips on toys.

If you are dealing with the toy safety directive you may have lots of questions:

  • Is my product a toy?
  • We are not a manufacturer. What do I have to do?
  • How do I organise a conformity assessment?
  • Which substances need to I test for?
  • What are the different age categories?
  • Is my product child appealing?
  • What are the rules with regards to labels and markings?
