European Commission adopts the proposal for a Toy Safety Regulation
On Friday 28 July, the European Commission proposed a Toy Safety Regulation revising the current rules to protect children from potential risks in toys.
The proposal will prohibit harmful chemicals and strengthen safety enforcement with the introduction of a Digital Product Passport.
The proposed Regulation on toy safety will replace the current Directive, strengthening the level of protection of children from possible risks, while improving the level playing field between toys manufactured in the EU and abroad.

This adopted act is open for feedback for a period of 8 weeks, until 26 September 2023.
