Course overview

Toys are one of the most wide ranging categories of consumer products encompassing everything from small soft filled toys to complex radio controlled
electrical items to multi-activity climbing frames and swing combinations. Understandably they are one of the most closely controlled product groups in terms of safety.

The safety of toys within Europe is governed by the Toy Safety Directive, which lays down the legal requirements covering the safety of toys, their labelling and the obligations on manufacturers, importers and retailers. The directive is supported by various standards, which detail the specific requirements in terms of mechanical and electrical safety, flammability and chemical hazards.

This seminar will consider how battery operated products are covered by this directive and the role of standards in the context of the Toy Directive. An overview will be given of the requirements of the electrical standard EN62115 as well as mentioning other standards and Directives that may be relevant to battery operated products.

Samples will be available to illustrate various points along with
test equipment however please feel free to bring your own
samples if you have specific questions and a tour of our facilities.
