The documentation in the new service assesses whether companies have correctly risk assessed products and conducted all relevant testing to assure retailers that toys from outside the EU comply with the new rules.

Alastair McLaughlin, toy safety specialist, commented: “The toy market has seen a number of high profile toy recalls and some confusion where the buck stops in the supply chain.

"The new regulations make it crystal clear, so it is vital that importers and retailers ensure that their supply chain is compliant."

TÜV SÜD Product Service’s new Toy Compliance Service will also assess a toy manufacturer’s technical documentation, or train them to make their own assessments in-house.

The service can also support manufacturers with a complete technical documentation service, including risk assessment of the design, correct compilation of documents and safety evidence, and sample testing.

Jean-Louis Evans, MD, TÜV SÜD Product Service, said: "One of the key changes in the new Toy Directive has been to make the paperwork requirements more stringent to prove that products have been correctly risk assessed.

"With a new onus on retailers to ensure that their supply chain is providing the correct documentation, our service will help them understand these new demands and get it right first time."
