    Independent Retail Europe is concerned by a lack of clarity relating to the Toy Safety Directive (2009/48/EC). Isolated Cases There is a lack of consistency between the toy safety rules and the general product safety rules on what distributors should do in “isolated cases.” This is because the TSD is silent on the subject of isolated cases. An isolated case is where a problem with only one sample of a product has been shown as the cause of a...

    ANEC is in favour of evaluating the Toy Safety Directive. Although the Directive certainly brought improvements to toy safety in Europe, the following issues need to be addressed in our opinion: • the chemical requirements for toys need to be strengthened significantly. This position is shared by several Member States. The lack of adequate provisions to exclude exposure to dangerous substances such as CMRs requires a fundamental revision of...

These new functionalities create new vulnerabilities for children as has been shown by the Norwegian Consumer Council. It is of serious concern that the current legal framework and its definition for a ‘safe’ toy does not unequivocally cover Internet connecting toys and related security threats. An update of the definition and of safety...

    Sehr geehrte Damen und Herren! Ich finde es wichtig, wenn die Toy und Safety-Direktive einer Evaluation unterzogen wird, um Fehlentscheidungen bei der Erstellung der Normen zu korrigieren, das Vertrauen von Konsumenten, Behörden und Produzenten in das Regulativ zu stärken bzw. herzustellen. + Grenzwerte bestimmter physikalischer chemischer Größen sollten erst nach eingehender sicherheits- bzw. gesundheitsrelevanter wissenschaftlicher...
