Extracts from the press conference by Antonio Tajani on the Toy Safety Campaign
On 1 August 2012, Antonio Tajani, Vice-President of the EC in charge of Industry and Entrepreneurship, held a press conference on the Toy Safety Campaign.
EU rules for toys impose the highest safety requirements in the world. To ensure these laws are correctly implemented and effective the EU needs to ensure they are applied in practice by reliable and trustworthy toy manufacturers and retailers; backed up by efficient market surveillance by Member States' authorities, and, importantly, that consumers know what to look for when they buy toys for children. If one or more of these elements is missing, dangerous toys may still reach children. PHOTOSHOTLIST
