Toys and Children’s Products

Testing » Tested products

The marketing of toys and products for children under three years of age is regulated by harmonized European legislation as well as by national – Czech legislation. Until 19 July 2011, toys are subject to the European Directive 88/378/EEC, which shall – after that date – be replaced by Directive 2009/48/EC of 18 June 2009 on the safety of toys. Only such toys are allowed to enter the EU market, which are in consistence with this legislation and, pursuant to the new Directive, also bear the CE marking and are accompanied by an EC declaration of conformity. For products designed for children under three years of age (sold on the Czech market), which include also toys for children under three years of age, there is an obligation to comply with the requirements of Decree No. 84/2001 Coll. implementing Act No. 258/2000 Coll., on Public Health Protection. These products, at all trade levels except for retail trade, must always be accompanied by a written declaration confirming that the products comply with the hygienic requirements laid down by the Decree. Such declaration is to be issued by the manufacturer, importer or authorized representative based on a compliance assessment of the results of the product tests with the hygienic requirements laid down by the above-mentioned Decree.
