The Directive is intended to provide a common standard for the safety of toys throughout the whole of the EEA. All toys which are sold within the EEA are required to meet the requirements of the Directive, and may be sold without subject to further local legal controls so long as they are legitimately CE marked.
Toys are defined in the Directive as:
"Products designed or intended, whether or not exclusively, for use in play by children under 14 years of age"
The Directive applies to all toys within its scope and irrespective of whether they are sold or given away, new or second-hand. Manufacturers, authorised representatives, importers and distributors all have defined obligations and may be held responsible for supplying toys which do not comply with the Directive's requirements.
