Toys Testing

Minimise the risk of liability, costly product returns and brand-damaging recalls

Your challenge

Safety and quality are fundamental concerns for all consumers, but particularly for parents who buy toys and other products related to children. In line with this, standards and regulations in multiple markets around the world have become increasingly stringent.

If your business has designed a new toy, game or child’s product that you want to manufacture and commercialise in Europe, or if you are looking at importing a toy from the Far East, navigating the regulatory minefield can be a daunting exercise. 

Common questions include consumer safety and compliance, the application of government standards, your obligations and responsibilities in the European market – and, of course, which tests you need to carry out to make sure you adhere to all these rules.
