Toys and Childcare


There is probably no more worthwhile or necessary testing than that done on toys and Childcare products.

The UK Toy Safety Regulations (2011) (SI 2011 No 1881) apply to manufacturers, importers, retailers, hirers, and other suppliers of new and second hand toys. In fact anyone supplying toys in the course of business, even toys distributed free of charge are covered by the Regulations.
