What does EN71 do? What standards does EN71 have?
EN71 is the standard of toy products in EU market. Children are the most concerned and cherished group in the whole society. The toy market which children generally like is developing rapidly. At the same time, the harm caused by various quality problems to children is also happening from time to time. Therefore, the requirements of toys on the domestic market are becoming increasingly stringent all over the world. Many countries have established their own safety regulations for these products. Manufacturing companies must ensure that their products meet relevant standards before they are sold in the region. The manufacturer must be responsible for accidents caused by production defects, poor design or improper use of materials. Therefore, the toy EN71 certification act was introduced in Europe. Its significance is to regulate the toy products entering the European market through EN71 standard, so as to reduce or avoid the harm of toys to children.
