The certification mark applies to mechanical toys. The term “toys” applies to all products designed or intended, whether exclusively or not, for use in play by children under 14 years of age.
The certification mark is based on the EN 71 series of standards, which includes requirements for toys, their packaging and labeling. It also defines how to test the products' mechanical and physical properties. The certification mark is also based on the requirements of the German Food and Feed Code (Lebensmittel- und Futtermittelgesetzbuch) regarding resistance of consumer products to saliva and perspiration. This test is based on the DIN 53160-1 and-2 standards.
The voluntary TÜV SÜD certification mark with the statement “Safety tested” is awarded for products indicating that the product was tested and certified by the independent third-party organisation of TÜV SÜD Product Service for conformity with the essential technical safety requirements.
