Implementation of the Toy Safety Directive

At a Glance 10-02-2022

The 2009 Toy Safety Directive has been protecting children in the EU for more than 10 years, imposing some of the world's strictest requirements on toys, in particular concerning hazardous chemicals. As the European Commission prepares to update the directive, the European Parliament's Committee on the Internal Market and Consumer Protection has examined the directive's implementation and proposed ways to amend it. Parliament is expected to vote on the committee's own initiative report during its February plenary session.
