A look at changes to the list of standards for presumption of conformity with the European Toy Safety Directive.

Online PR News – 03-December-2021 – Geneva, Switzerland – The European Union (EU) has made four changes to its list of standards that are taken to demonstrate conformity with Directive 2009/48/EC, the so-called European Toy Safety Directive (TSD).

Implementing Decision (EU) 2021/1992 was published on November 16, 2021. It repeals Implementing Decision (EU) 2021/867 and includes four updates to the standards for presumption of conformity:

• EN 71-2:2020 for flammability
• EN 71-3:2019+A1:2021 for migration of certain elements
• EN 71-4:2020 for experimental sets for chemistry and related activities, and

Previous iterations of these standards will be withdrawn on May 15, 2022:
