Toy Safety Standards

IQS can help companies by:

  • Anticipating their obligations under the new toy safety directive
  • Identifying the legislative compliance and labelling requirements for each toy or toy type
  • Identifying risks and hazards relating to the toy
  • Ensuring assembly and use instructions are acceptable
  • Establishing the best method to demonstrate compliance and to manage additional risks
  • Checking that evidence of compliance supplied by your vendors is acceptable
  • Putting you in contact with specialist companies supplying specific compliance schemes where appropriate
  • Highlighting free sources of technical guidance
  • Ensuring your manufacturing sites meet the most appropriate audit requirements for your customers
  • Providing bespoke training for your staff to enable in-house compliance management

We are not a testing laboratory and can often save you money by establishing cost effective compliance options some of which may already be within your supply chain.

Toy Safety Standards

Jerry Burnie of IQS is one of the Toys Safety Advisors used by the British Toy and Hobby Association and is the Chairman of their Toy Safety and Technical Matters Committee. As such we are ideally placed to be aware of the latest standards and industry developments linked to toys.

Toys are one of the most regulated product categories in the EU. They are used by some of the most vulnerable consumers who rely on others for their protection. On top of the many legislative requirements are the environmental restrictions and obligations that must be met by importers and manufacturers.

The Toy Safety Directive was revised in 2011 and 2012 for the first time in more than 20 years. The changes have been far reaching and have impacted the compliance strategies companies need to trade legally.

Our team monitors US and EU recall data weekly and subscribes to the most appropriate technical newsletters to ensure we are aware of product issues.
