EN71 mark

EN71 is the standard of toy products in EU market. Children are the most concerned and cherished group in the whole society. The toy market which children generally like is developing rapidly. At the same time, the harm to children caused by various quality problems of toys happens from time to time. Therefore, the requirements of toys on the domestic market are becoming increasingly stringent all over the world. Many countries have established their own safety regulations for these products. Manufacturing companies must ensure that their products meet relevant standards before they are sold in the region. The manufacturer must be responsible for accidents caused by production defects, poor design or improper use of materials. Therefore, the toy EN71 certification act was introduced in Europe. Its significance is to regulate the toy products entering the European market through EN71 standard, so as to reduce or avoid the harm of toys to children.

Latest revision

EN 71-1:2005+A9:2009 released the latest revision 9, which was approved by CEN (European Committee for Standardization) on May 23, 2009, and eventually released by CEN Technical Committee CEN/TC52 'Toy Safety' in July 2009 (EN 71-1:2005+A9:2009), covering previous revisions. The European Commission officially published the new toy safety coordination standard EN71-1:2011 in the Official Bulletin of the European Union (OJEU) on June 18, 2011. The new coordination standard is set in accordance with the new toy safety directive 2009/48/EC (effective date: July 20, 2011). According to the new toy safety directive, all toys put into the EU market after July 20, 2011 must meet the new harmonized toy standard EN71-1:2011.

The new version (EN 71-1:2005+A9:2009) replaces EN 71-1:2005+A8:2009, which requires its member states to adopt and publish the new version as a national standard, and to revoke the contradictory national standard by January 2010 at the latest.

The amendment has not yet been published in the Official Gazette of the European Union. The process of adopting and changing standards is very complicated. First of all, the national authoritative bodies, laboratories and consumer organizations of the industry representatives of CEN (European Standardization Commission) agreed to change the standard after discussion, and then the CEN issued EN 71 standard. But the standards issued by CEN are not necessarily uniform. Only after the European Commission published this standard in the Official Gazette of the European Union will it become a unified standard. Only after the standard was published in the Official Bulletin of the European Union can it be accepted and meet the basic requirements of the toy instruction. Therefore, the standard needs to be issued twice before it becomes a statute:

1. Promulgated by CEN (European Standardization Commission);

2. After being published by the European Commission in the Official Gazette of the European Union, it can be used as a unified standard.

In addition to increasing the early warning requirements for rocking Trojans and similar toys, the A7 revision has also been edited. The age warning for toys that are not suitable for children under 36 months has been increased by a large amount of descriptions.

The A8 revision clarifies safety requirements for magnet toys. However, this requirement does not apply to functional magnets (e.g., motors, relays, loudspeakers, etc.) in electrical or electronic toys, magnets/electrical test devices with magnetic flux coefficients less than 50 kG2mm2 for all magnets, or magnets/electrical test devices with incomplete access to measuring barrels for small items. Packaging and instructions for use of magnet/electrical test devices shall be accompanied by warning signs:

'Warning! Not suitable for children under 8 years old. The product contains fine magnets. Swallowing magnets can cause intestinal adhesion, which can lead to serious injury. If the magnet is swallowed by mistake, please see a doctor in time.'

The A8 revision also applies to the safety warning requirements for magnet toys in EC Directive 2008/329/EC 2,3.
