Toys are very important for every children without toy any children can start weeping or will be getting bored. All toys intended for children under 14 years sold in European country must comply with strict specifications to ensure the safety of children. Some company do chemical tests to verify that the substances do not migrate through sweat or saliva tests for flammability, mechanical tests (tensile, drop, compression). But in our country there is no strict rule about this area.
The limitation of this regulation, because there is one, is that there is a “presumption of conformity” and that control is not systematic. The manufacturer is not required to perform these tests by an outside agency: it may have an internal laboratory approved. However, for products manufactured abroad, the importer claims generally guaranteed, which minimizes risk.
You can also track the logo of the toy. It can be applied only when tests were conducted by an independent auditing. It is a voluntary commitment on the part of the manufacturer. In our country govt should make some Nobel rule for children toy making company.
1 toy testing expert said on this question: What is the role of a laboratory like yours on the toy market?
“We intervene at the request of a manufacturer, distributor or Fraud to assess compliance with the European Directive toys. We test and the main risks, as the presence of small parts, small balls or string length for children under 3 years as well as kinetic energy projectiles or sound pressure level.Some scandals have shaken the confidence of parents for toys manufactured in Asia. This fear is well-founded?”
All toys, irrespective of their origin, undergo the same tests and are subject to the same requirements across the European Union. But with 80% of toys made in Asia, the probability that they are non-compliant is mathematically greater.
As a parent, how to reduce the risks?
Observe the restrictions of age because the tests are very different for children under 3…
