Toy manufacturers and retailers increasingly import toy products and parts from all over the world. To ensure they are safe for children to play with, the European Union introduced the EU Toy Safety Directive, which aims to establish minimum safety standards relating to toy features, flammability, substances, documentation and more. In order for manufacturers and retailers to sell their products in the EU, the toys must be compliant to the directive.
Join us in this 1-hour webinar where our experts will provide insights to the EU Toy Safety Directive and share latest updates and developments of the toys requirement.
