In its aim to help toy manufacturers, importers and retailers ensure their Electrical and Electronic (EE) toys are safe and compliant for European markets, SGS – the world’s leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company, is to host a complimentary webinar.
‘Focus on EN IEC 62115:2020 for Electrical and Electronic Toys’ takes place on March 24, 2020 and will provide insight into the range of European Union (EU) standards and regulations that exist to protect children from harm.
The 60-minute webinar will focus on:
• European Toy Safety Directive 2009/48/EC
• Harmonized electrical toy standard EN IEC 62115:2020
• Other applicable requirements for electric toys such EMC, RED, RoHS2, WEEE
• Live Q&A session
EE toys are defined as those which have at least one function dependent on electricity and that are designed or clearly intended for use in play by children under the age of 14. Since July 2011, toys entering the EU market have been required to comply with the Toy Safety Directive 2009/48/EC (TSD).
To address electrical safety in EE toys, standards published by the European Committee for Standardization (CEN) have been harmonized to ensure conformity with the TSD. Only compliant EE toys displaying the CE Mark can enter the market.
Sanda Stefanovic, SGS Toy Expert and Webinar Presenter said: “Electronic and electrical toys help children develop their imagination, language skills, dexterity and more through fun, role-playing and education. If improperly used or badly designed these toys can rapidly turn from a source of fun into a serious hazard.
“Our free webinar will help participants better understand how electrical safety impacts products and will explore the requirements and regulations that should be taken into account to deliver safe and compliant EE toys into European markets.”
