Toy safety toys

In the range of accreditation No. AB 910 KOMAG Laboratory of Material Engineering and Environment offers toy safety tests for conformity with the requirements of the standards harmonized with Directive No. 2009/48/EC (TSD) and the following standards:

  • PN-EN 71-1 Safety of toys. Part 1. Mechanical and physical properties.
  • PN-EN 71-2 Safety of toys. Part 2. Flammability.
  • PN-EN 71-3 Safety of toys. Part 3. Migration of certain elements.
  • PN-EN 71-8 Safety of toys. Part 8. Activity toys for domestic use.
  • PN-EN 62115 Electric toys. Safety of use.

Range of tests given above also covers determination of hazardous substances in the products and articles for children, according to requirements of Regulation by European Parliament and Council No. 1907/2006 regarding registration, evaluation, permits granting and limits applied in the scope of chemicals (REACH) as well as the following Standards:

  • PN-EN 71-9 Safety of toys. Part 9. Organic chemical compounds. Requirements.
  • PN-EN 71-10 Safety of toys. Part 10. Organic chemical compounds. Sample preparation and extraction.
  • PN-EN 71-11 Safety of toys. Part 11. Organic chemical compounds. Methods of analysis.

Safety of toys tests offer is dedicated to manufacturers, importers and distributors intending to place new toys on the market.
