Hello and welcome to Cert3Global, your trusted partner for toy export consultancy. We are a team of experts who can help you navigate the complex and ever-changing requirements for exporting toys to the European Union (EU) market.

The EU is one of the largest and most lucrative markets for toys, but it also has strict regulations to ensure the safety and quality of the products. To export toys to the EU, you need to comply with the following steps:
Design and manufacture your toys according to the EU Toy Safety Directive.
This directive sets out the essential safety requirements for toys, such as physical, mechanical, chemical, electrical, flammability, and hygiene aspects. It also specifies the obligations of manufacturers, importers, and distributors in terms of conformity assessment, technical documentation, CE marking, and traceability.
Test your toys according to the relevant harmonized standards.
The most common standards for toys are EN 71-1 (mechanical and physical properties), EN 71-2 (flammability), EN 71-3 (migration of certain elements), and EN 71-12 (nitrosamines and nitrosatable substances). You can use a third-party testing laboratory accredited by an EU member state to perform the tests and issue a test report.
Prepare a declaration of conformity and affix the CE mark.
The declaration of conformity is a document that states that your toys comply with the EU Toy Safety Directive and the applicable standards. It must include information such as your name and address, a description of the toy, the references of the standards used, and your signature. The CE mark is a symbol that indicates that your toys meet the EU requirements. It must be affixed visibly, legibly, and indelibly to the toy or its packaging.
Keep a technical file and ensure traceability.
The technical file is a collection of documents that demonstrate how your toys comply with the EU Toy Safety Directive and the applicable standards. It must include information such as a detailed description of the toy, a copy of the declaration of conformity, a copy of the test report, and an explanation of the conformity assessment procedure used. The technical file must be kept for 10 years after placing the toy on the market and be made available to the authorities upon request.
