Toy Safety Testing

Toys are defined as any product(s) or materials which are designed or intended (whether or not exclusively) for children under 14 years of age to use.

Based on the insecurity of toys, such as design flaws and toxic substances in the materials, most countries have developed their own toy regulation and standards. Upon compliance, toy products must be tested and marked with test standards as the alternative limits production, sale and import of goods.
