Recently, UL Consumer & Retail Services announced that they signed a cooperation agreement with Taiwan Children’s Commodities R&D Center, the leading regulatory body for children’s toys in Taiwan. This partnership will assist global companies that manufacture children’s products in navigating and passing the testing and certification required by the Taiwan market, further facilitate product entry into the Taiwan market.
UL Facilitates Taiwan Market Access for Toys Manufacturers
Taiwan Children’s Commodities R&D Center serves as a laboratory designated by the Bureau of Standards, Metrology and Inspection (BSMI) under the Ministry of Economic Affairs, providing toys and children’s commodities exported to or made in Taiwan with security assessment, inspection, verification, on-site checking and maintenance, as well as relevant technical consultation and guidance. The Center can conduct testing services to help ensure compliance with access standards adopted by all countries and regions, such as CNS 4797 Taiwan Toy Standard; ASTM F963 The U.S. Toy Safety Standard (toys, including electric testing); EN71 Part 1–6 European Standard (toys); ISO22717 Microbiology – Detection of Pseudomonas aeruginosa; and CNS general requirements for the security of children’s commodities.
As a leader among international testing and certification institutes, UL’s expert team has a profound understanding and vision for the industry standards. UL helps global enterprises rapidly understand global laws and regulations, align their products toward the requirements for exporting standards and enhance the competitiveness of exported products in a comprehensive way. UL is ready to give full play to its experience and strength to facilitate children’s products and toys makers to get a “license” for sale in Taiwan and to gain a toehold in its market via cooperation with Taiwan Children’s Commodities R&D Center.
Now, children’s products manufacturers can work with both UL and Taiwan Children’s Commodities R&D Center in order to get timely, updated regulatory information of Taiwan, comprehensive and integrated solutions for product quality and safety, and a more effective way to obtain BSMI certification in Taiwan before entering the Taiwan market.
Looking forward to the future, both parties will cooperate to help manufacturers in technology innovation, standard research and technical training, to ensure the quality, safety and industrial competitiveness of global children’s products in the Taiwan market.
