Toy export certification of the world -- Europe

2020-06-04 19:29:28 nsn

The "CE" mark is a safety certification mark, which is regarded as a passport for manufacturers to open and enter the European market. All products with "CE" mark can be sold in EU Member States, thus realizing the free circulation of goods within EU Member States. The "CE" mark in the EU market is a compulsory certification mark. No matter the products produced by enterprises within the EU or by other countries, if they want to circulate freely in the EU market, they must affix the "CE" mark to show that the products meet the basic requirements of the EU Directive on New methods of technical coordination and standardization. This is a compulsory requirement of EU law for products. The products with CE mark indicate that they meet the requirements of a series of European directives, such as safety, health, environmental protection and consumer protection. The wide use of CE mark can not only make the products adapt to the European market, but also adapt to the international market outside Europe.

European CE certification

European toy standard

Toy products sold in the European Union must meet the requirements of the following directives:

Toy safety directive 88 / 378 / EEC

EN-71 is the EU toy standard, mainly Part 1-6 of EN-71, which has been incorporated into the regulations of its member states. Part 9 of the EU toy standard EN-71 is mandatory, because the safety of toys in the EU is the most basic requirement, and meeting the EN-71 standard means meeting the safety requirements of toys. Toys marked with CE mark can generally be regarded as meeting the standard of EN-71. However, there are other standards applicable to toys, such as EN50088, EN62115, etc. The product must meet all these standards before it can be marked with CE mark. EN71 standard is as follows:

Toy general standard EN71

Mechanical and physical performance test EN71 Part 1

EN71 Part 2 flammability test

Content test of 8 toxic metal elements in EN71 Part 3

EN71 Part 4 chemical experiment toys

EN71 Part 5 non experimental chemical toys

Graphic symbol of warning label for EN71 Part 6 age group

EN71 Part 7 finger paint

EN71 Part 9 general requirements for organic compounds

EN71 Part 10 sample preparation and extraction

EN71 Part 11 analysis method of organic compounds

Additional test standard for electric toys EN50088 / EN62115

This standard includes all electric toys and also applies to electric construction sets, The main testing contents of electrical functional toys or experimental sets en 50088 / en 62115 include: signs and descriptions, input power, temperature rise and abnormal operation, electrical strength, mechanical strength, structure, wires, screws and components, creepage distance and electrical clearance, fire protection, heat resistance, toxic and similar hazards, etc

EMC Directive 2004 / 108 / EEC

For electric toys, relevant standards of electromagnetic compatibility shall also be met, including electromagnetic radiation (EMI): en55022 en55014-1 en61000-3-2 / 3, electromagnetic immunity (EMS): en55014-2, wireless and communication terminal equipment, R & TTE instruction. For wireless remote-controlled toys, such as toy remote-controlled cars, aircraft models, etc., RF, EMC and safety test shall be conducted according to R & TTE instruction, Cadmium test and azo test

GS certification

Click to see the big picture GS, which means "geprufte Sicherheit" in German and "Germany safety". GS certification is a kind of voluntary certification based on German product safety law (SGS) and tested according to European Union unified standard EN or German industrial standard DIN. It is recognized as German safety certification mark in European market.

The GS mark indicates that the use safety of the product has passed the test of independent organization of credibility. GS logo, although not mandatory by law, can make manufacturers subject to strict German (European) product safety law in case of accidents caused by product failure. So GS logo is a powerful market tool, which can enhance customers' confidence and purchase desire. Although GS is a German standard, most European countries agree. At the same time of GS certification, the products will also meet the CE mark requirements of the European community. Unlike CE, GS logo has no legal requirements, but because safety awareness has penetrated into ordinary consumers, an electrical appliance with GS logo may have greater competitiveness in the market than ordinary products.

Difference between GS and CE

GS is a voluntary certification, and CE is a compulsory certification;

GS is tested according to German safety regulations; CE is tested according to European standard (EN)

GS is tested by an independent third party authorized by the German government and issued with GS mark certificate; CE can declare CE by itself on the premise of having complete technical documents (including test report)

GS has to pay an annual fee; CE does not have to pay an annual fee

GS must conduct Factory review every year; CE does not need Factory review

GS is issued by authorized testing unit with high credibility and market acceptance; CE factory's self declaration of product conformity has low credibility and market acceptance
