The objective of this webinar (45-minute presentation/15-minute Q&A) is to facilitate the compliance journey for the US toy standard and its requirements.

The webinar addresses the following main topics:


  • Sound-Producing Toys
  • Stability and Over-Load Requirements
  • Confined Spaces
  • Projectile Toys
  • Battery-Operated Toys
  • Hemispheric-Shaped Objects
  • Magnets
  • Expanding Materials
  • Toy Chests


  • US regulation on toys
  • Updates to the US toy standard (ASTM F963-16)
  • Q&A


The US toy regulation was signed into law on May 13, 2009. The Commission accepted ASTM F963–08 (except for the removal of section 4.27 of ASTM F963–07, which covers toy chests). The requirements of ASTM F963–08 became effective on August 16, 2009, except for section 4.27 (toy chests) of ASTM F963–07, which was already in effect. The current version of the standard (ASTM F963-16) became a mandatory requirement on April 30, 2017.
