  • Children’s Products

At present, a specific directive or harmonised safety standards are not in place for children’s products such as back packs, novelty slippers, stationery/school sets, footwear etc
In the absence of relevant standards, the safety requirements are assessed against the closet published standards for General Product Safety Directive 2001/95/EC purposes.

Depending on the product, there may be other testing obligations, such as compliance with the REACH Regulations (EC) No 1907/2006.

We will be happy to advise you on the tests your product will require.
