Toy testing for the UK/EU 

Compliance testing for toys including: 
Stuffed toys 
Plastic toys 
Wooden toys 
Painted toys 
If your product is specifically for children, you need to be confident it is safe. We test toys for toxicity, flammability and durability, in line with EU standards. In the EU, all toys intended for use by children under 14 years of age must comply with the Toy Safety Directive 2009/48EC and must bear a suitable CE Mark.
