This training provides an overview of current European and international toy safety legislation and an understanding of legal obligations as well as the chemical requirements within the European Directives and the obligations of everyone within the supply chain.

In addition, it will look at when to test your product, the types of tests that the labs carry out and how to read test reports. Learn how to apply the CE mark and use the correct warnings.
