EU Toy Safety Directive Knowledge Management Training

The New EU Toy Safety Directive (2009/48/EC) took effect in July 2011. This new Directive is complex, even for the most seasoned regulatory and quality assurance expert.

New safety and conformity assessment requirements, chemical requirements, technical documentation requirements and many other provisions of the EU Toy Directive all provoke significant questions and present potential pitfalls to manufacturers, importers, private labelers, distributors and retailers of children’s products.
