Toy Safety Directive 2009/48/EC

Toy Safety DirectiveThe new Toy Safety Directive of the European Union was adopted in May 11, 2009 (Dir. 2009/48/EC). The document adds new requirements for the production and delivery of children products to those set out in Directive 88/378/EEC. The reviewed standards have become mandatory since July 2011 and, all over the European Union, toys must meet these standards to pass certification tests. The provisions related to the chemical composition of a product have been effective since 2012.

The objective of Directive 2009/48/EC is to review the standards in order to ensure children's health protection and safety of toys produced in or exported to the European Union. Now toy certification is held pursuant to the more stringent requirements intended to increase the responsibility of manufacturers and distributors of children products.

For example, the accessible concentration of potentially hazardous chemical substances in toys has been reduced. The Directive states that the toy’s chemical composition must comply with general chemicals legislation of the European Union, in particular Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 concerning the registration, evaluation, authorization and restriction of chemicals.

Directive 2009/48/ЕС requires all toys sold in the EU to undergo conformity assessment (certification) as required by the Directive and meet all of the relevant essential health and safety requirements for the product, to the state of the art.
