UL experts talk about the toy safety assessment required under the European Toy Safety Directive 2009/48/EC and address queries and concerns of toy brands and manufacturers.

According to the European Toy Safety Directive 2009/48/EC, before placing a product on the market, toy manufacturers shall carry out an analysis of the chemical, physical, mechanical, electrical, flammability, hygiene and radioactive hazards that the toy may present, as well as an assessment of the potential exposure to such hazards.

The safety assessment is intended to identify and manage the hazards presented by a toy and can be carried out at any stage within the development of a product.

It’s advantageous to carry it out as early as possible in the development cycle and to revisit the assessment at key stages as the product changes through development.
