The Ministry of Health of Spain has enacted Order PRA/516/2018 Order Modifying Annex II of Royal Decree 12052011 on the Safety of Toys on May 22, 2018.

This Order amends the existing limits of chemicals in toys:

  • Lead: 2.0 ppm (dry, brittle, powder or malleable); 0.5 ppm (liquid or sticky); 2.3 ppm (scraped)
  • BPA: 0.04 ppm
  • Phenol: 5 ppm (polymeric materials); 10 ppm as preservative

These limits align with the current limits set out in the European Union’s Toy Safety Directive 2009/48/EC.

This Order will be enforced on October 28, 2018.
