TESTS IN TOYS

Given the vulnerable nature of children, the audience to which toys are aimed, must comply with extremely strict requirements. Depending on the market to which they are aimed, both at European and international levels, there are many laws and legislation that toys must comply with.

Technically, a toy is a product designed or intended, exclusively or not, to be used for play by children under the age of 14. This definition is contained in Directive 2009/48/CE of 18 June 2009 on toy safety, which is the most immediate legal environment for such products within the European environment.

Toys are part of a child’s home environment. Just as their design, features, and functions have evolved, so have the required safety requirements.

AIJU offers you a global service with the aim of helping you with your needs insofar as the sale and/or control of toys in the international and national market is concerned.
