Don't take the risk: TÜV SÜD ensures the safety of toys.
As a manufacturer of equipment and products intended for use by children, you are subject to particularly critical public scrutiny – and particularly strict statutory regulations. TÜV SÜD Product Service is your partner for all product safety concerns.
No chance for dangerous toys
Many toys sold in the EU and US are produced on the global market – over 65% of them in Asia. Increasing price pressure frequently causes manufacturers to subcontract to unknown companies, thus increasing the risk that poorer-quality – and possibly more dangerous – materials are used in production. End-to-end monitoring of global production and of the value chain, however, often proves difficult for suppliers.
Media reports raise consumer fears
Numerous media reports about recalls of dangerous toys spread concern among consumers and caused even renowned toy manufacturers to suffer from customers’ plummeting confidence. The media unanimously recommend that consumers look out for the certification marks of third-party test laboratories, such as the TÜV SÜD Octagon or GS mark, when buying toys.
Safety and quality: challenge and chance
Standardized, periodic checks that exceed legal requirements are therefore the assurance of more than quality. They can also prove to consumers that your products are safe and reliable, thus increasing your market opportunities.
Certain and systematic market success
As your process partner, we ensure that both your products and your production and sales processes comply with legal and customer-defined requirements. To achieve this, we accompany your products along the value chain, from supplier evaluation to periodic testing during production and delivery.
