On 27 June 2018, the new toy standard EN 71-1:2014+A1:20181 Mechanical and physical properties was published by the European Committee for Standardization (CEN). The Members of the CEN have begun to adopt the new standard and publish their own national version no later than 31 December 2018. The new standard will become the harmonised standard to give presumption of conformity to the Toy Safety Directive once it’s published in the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU). Previously, there were total three draft amendments developed for EN 71-1:2014. CEN decided merging them to one publication eventually. The changes to the new standard include but not limit to the scope expansion to add certain flying toys, updates for the definition of arrow, leading part, and the requirement revisions for cords, drawstrings, projectiles.
