Toy Tests

In October, 2016 published a Toy Safety Regulation by the Ministry of Customs and Trade. The regulation regulates the principles for the safety and free movement of toys. The regulation is based on the Toy Safety Directive 2009 / 48 / EC published by the European Union. This regulation covers the products used by all children under the age of 14 in games, regardless of whether they are designed for gaming purposes or for play purposes. According to this regulation, the list of products that are not accepted as toys is given in the annex to the regulation (Annex 1).

The toys that are not covered by the regulation are:

  • Playground equipment for people
  • Coin operated or non-operational automatic game machines for people to use
  • Toy vehicles with internal combustion engine
  • Toy Steam Machines
  • Slingshot and catapults

Comprehensive toy safety tests are carried out by the testing and inspection bodies in order to meet the requirements and requirements of the regulation.

Toy producing companies must comply with all basic safety requirements for toys, including the general safety requirements in the regulation and the special safety requirements contained in the regulation (Annex 2). In addition, toys should not compromise the health and safety of children or third parties when used as intended, in view of the chemicals they contain and the behavior of children. Briefly, toys offered to the market according to the regulation must comply with the basic safety requirements during their normal life.
