Day 6: Product Safety

Product safety law ensures that goods we buy do not cause us harm.

Trading standards services enforce the legislation and can provide guidance on the safety of products, such as toys, prams, pushchairs, clothing, beds, bicycles and car seats.

Buy your toys from a reputable retailer. They should be marked with:

  • the name and address of the manufacturer, or if the manufacturer is outside of the EU the name and address of the manufacturer and the importer
  • type, batch, serial or model number
  • the CE mark (see below):

The CE mark is a declaration by the manufacturer that the toy is safe.

These marks must be on the toy or its packaging and be permanent and easy to read.

Some toys must come with warnings and instructions about precautions that need to be taken to ensure safe use. For example toys for use by under 3’s, swings, skateboards, toys for use in water.
