Visit of Antonio Tajani, Vice-President of the EC, to Rotterdam

Antonio Tajani, Vice-President of the EC in charge of Industry and Entrepreneurship, went to the harbour of Rotterdam to verify the opening of containers filled with toys that are daily checked to ensure that no harmful toys enter in the EU market. From 20/07/2011 manufacturers/importers would need to respect strengthened safety requirements for toys imported in the EU.
By this date, Member States would need to incorporate all requirements set by the new Toy Safety Directive adopted in 2009. The new rules fulfilled the highest safety requirements world-wide, especially those relating to the use of chemical substances. It was particularly important that Member States ensure enhanced market surveillance.
In 2012, a European toy safety campaign would be organised in several Member States. The aim of the campaign was to increase economic operators' awareness about the new rules that were coming into force, by providing specific seminars and training.
