Bureau Veritas Consumer Products Services UK has been accredited by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) and approved by the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) as a Notified Body for Toys under the new Toy Safety Directive.

Bureau Veritas is now able to carry out EC-type examinations and issue EC-type examination certificates under the Toy Safety Directive 2009/48/EC, which has been in force since July 2011.

There are four instances when toys may only be placed on the market if an EC-type examination certificate has been issued:

- When harmonised standards covering all safety requirements do not exist
- When harmonised standards exist but the manufacturer has used them only in part
- When harmonised standards exist but have been published with a restriction
- When the manufacturer considers that the nature, design, construction or purpose of the toy necessitate third party verification
