Intertek goes beyond regulatory testing to provide research and development services that incorporate real-life child observation and risk analysis to assess, identify and predict potential hazards in toys and children’s products at all stages of development and production.
Intertek’s global accreditations in toy and children’s products testing include the U.S. CPSIA, EU Toy Safety Directive, ASTM International, Health Canada’s CPSA, GB Standards and International Standards Organization (ISO), as well as a number of state regulations including California’s Prop 65, Washington State’s Children’s Safe Products Act and Maine’s Safer Chemicals in Children’s Products Act.
Our experts also actively participate in a broad range of advisory committees and boards developing standards for children’s products, including the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), Comité Européen de Normalisation (CEN), American Society of Testing and Materials (ASTM), and the Juvenile Product Manufacturers Association (JPMA).
