European standard EN 71 specifies safety requirements for toys. Compliance with the standard is legally required for all toys sold in the European Union. The standard has been published in 11 parts: EN 71-1: Mechanical and physical properties EN 71-2: Flammability EN 71-3: Specification for migration of certain elements EN 71-4: Experimental sets for chemistry and related activities EN 71-5: Chemical toys (sets) other than experimental sets EN 71-6: Graphical symbols for age warning labelling EN 71-7: Finger paints EN 71-8: Swings, slides and similar activity toys for indoor and outdoor family domestic use EN 71-9: Organic chemical compounds- Requirement EN 71-10: Organic chemical compounds-Sample preparation and extraction EN 71-11: Organic chemical compounds - Methods of analysis EN71 test standard and content of the EN71-1: Safety of toys - Part 1: Physical and mechanical properties of the parts include drop testing, testing of small parts, sharp edges testing, tensile testing, stress testing, seam testing, ear, nose pulling eye , torque testing. EN71-2: Safety of toys - Part 2: Flame retardant properties of the provisions of this section prohibit the use of all flammable materials, toys and certain types of toys small fire burning performance requirements. Require the burning rate of the test material shall not exceed the standards prescribed limits. Worn on the head comes to toys, clothes and fancy toys for children to wear in the play in the toys, toys for children to enter, or textile fabrics with a soft plush stuffed toys. EN71-3: 2001/AC: 2002 Safety of toys - Part 3: Some elements of the transfer of some of the provisions of the toys that can touch the components or materials could be relocated elements (antimony, arsenic, barium, cadmium, chromium, lead, mercury , tin) the maximum limits. The test principle is: the soluble elements are simulated material constant contact with the acid after swallowing a period of time under the conditions of material extracted from the toys the dissolution matter. With a detection limit of quantitative determination of the appropriate method of the content of soluble elements. Now EN71-3 added to the 19 problems, EU Toy Safety Directive 2009/48/EC determines the classification of new materials, new elements accessible parts of the new migration limit, New EN71-3 detection elements: aluminum, antimony, arsenic, barium, boron, cadmium, chromium (III), Cr (VI), cobalt, copper, lead, manganese, mercury, nickel, selenium, strontium, tin, organic tin, Zinc.The standard will be divided into three categories toy materials, different types corresponding to different limits.
