Toys: Risk assessment and the European Toy Safety Directive
Thursday 7th November 2019
On 7th November, SATRA will be hosting a one-day seminar to discuss the testing of toys to the European Toy Safety Directive (2009/48/EC). The seminar will outline the requirements of the Directive and the information that should be included within a technical file. The morning session will also include discussions about when toy testing is considered appropriate due diligence for non-toy items. The EN 71 series of standards including testing demonstrations will conclude the morning presentation before a complimentary lunch.
The afternoon presentations will include a practical risk assessment session, discussing hazards associated with specific toys and children’s products and a very brief introduction to the REACH (1907/2006) legislation.
An optional tour of SATRA’s facilities and individual consultation sessions are available at the end of the seminar. Delegates are welcome to bring along their own examples which can form part of individual discussions or the afternoon group discussions.
This seminar is essential for those manufacturing or importing toys and novelty products including gifts that are appealing to children and that might have play value.
