Summary

Information on the Handmade or homemade Toys can be found here.

The Toy Safety Directive 2009/48/EC was published in June 2009, and the previous version of the Directive (88/368/EEC) was repealed in July 2011. The application and enforcement are aligned with the so-called New Legislative Framework.

The Toy Safety Directive lays out the legal requirements that all toys sold within the EEA must comply with. Manufacturers, importers and suppliers must ensure their products comply, including mechanical and physical safety, flammability, and the migration of certain elements. Specialist testing is usually the easiest way of proving that a toy meets these requirements. There are also some administrative obligations that should be met, including creating and keeping a Technical File, producing a Declaration of Conformity and applying the CE mark to the toy.
