Toys are an essential part of children’s development. They help develop their cognitive skills and fine and gross motor skills. Products intended for children must have the most strict regulations to minimize the possible dangers to which they may be exposed.

The current legislation on toys in Europe is Directive 48/2009 / EC, published on June 18, 2009; they were previously regulated by Directive 88/378 / EEC. The regulation had a transition period of 2 years.

Since July 20, 2011, the Toy Safety Directive 48/2009 / EC became the main legal framework in the European Union.

A toy manufactured by a company outside the European Union must have a European Authorized Representative. A manufacturer is: “any natural or legal person that manufactures a toy, or has a toy designed or manufactured, and markets it under his name or trademark”

Depending on the characteristics of the toy, you may have to comply with other types of regulations such as cosmetics, electrical, electromagnetic.

Sometimes it can be complex to detect whether a toy must comply with various laws, that is why at Bionok Healthcare S.L we manage and advise you throughout the process.
