Consumer Goods and Retail Toys and Juvenile Products
In order to better protect children tougher toy safety requirements for children’s products have been implemented in the EU and United States, with the new EU Toy Safety Directive and the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA).
In the last couple of years children’s products have represented a significant portion of the recall notifications by authorities in the EU and United States. Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Russia and Japan have also developed their own toy regulations and standards.
