With the rapid development of toy safety standards worldwide, it is important to have efficient and coherent audit systems in place for factories to ensure uniformity of audits. Intertek has established a network of international auditing experts who are well-trained in the requirements of various auditing protocols for the toy industry, including those set by the International Council of Toy Industries (ICTI).
