What's EN71
Nov 07, 2018

With the understanding of Phthalates (phthalate), phthalates in children's products have been paid more and more attention. The EU made a formal decision in 1999 to impose strict limits on the content of phthalates in toys (such as baby nipples) and other children's articles used by children under 3 years of age in EU member states. Experts have found that soft plastic toys and children's articles containing phthalates may be imported by children. If they are kept for long enough, the dissolution of phthalates will exceed the safe level. Can harm children's liver and kidney, can also cause precocious puberty in children. EU Directive 2005/84/EC on limiting phthalate content in toys and child care products came into force on 16 January 2007 and has been translated into domestic legislation by all EU member States by 16 July 2007, On January 16, 2008, the respective laws were put into effect. According to the directive, child care supplies refer to any product that helps children to sleep, relax, maintain hygiene, and feed or allow children to suck, including all shapes and types of pacifiers. The European Commission for Standardization approved the new EN71-3:1994 toy safety standard on December 13, 1994, and called for the EN71-3:1988 standard to be abolished in June 1995. Then on March 11, 2000, the EN71-3:1994 A1: 2000 Standard (2000 Edition) was approved, and it was stipulated that the standard should be implemented by October 2000 at the latest, and other related standards should be abolished simultaneously.
