Five new standards for presumption of conformity with the Toy Safety Directive, and amendments to two entries in the standard for finger paints, have become effective on February 28, 2019.
These new standards will completely supersede their corresponding standards.
- EN 71-1:2014+A1:2018 Safety of toys – Part 1: Mechanical and physical properties
- EN 71-3:2013+A3:2018 Safety of toys – Part 3: Migration of certain elements
- EN 71-7:2014+A2:2018 Safety of toys – Part 7: Finger paints
- EN 71-8:2018 Safety of toys – Part 8: Activity toys for domestic use
- EN 71-14:2014+A1:2017 Safety of toys – Part 14: Trampolines for domestic use
What to do next:
Manufacturers and importers of toys into the EU are advised to comply with the latest standards and consider re-testing and certification of existing lines for continued presumption of conformity to Toy Safety – Directive 2009/48/EC.
