CE Marking requirements

CE marking obligation in the toy sector

Again and again I see quite nicely made baby or toddler toys (crackling books, book covers, disguises, etc.)

But please also remember that you have to test AND mark this?

Here are some interesting links.
Missing markings will be warned gladly!

And before coming up again: I only do this for my own use or give it away to friends:

Wrong thought!

According to § 2 No. 15 2nd GPSGV, manufacturer is any natural or legal person who manufactures a toy or has a toy developed or manufactured and makes this toy available on the market under their own name or brand.

 Making a toy available on the market means any supply of a toy for distribution, consumption or use on the market of the European Union in the course of a business activity, whether in return for payment or free of charge; importation into the European Economic Area is equivalent to making a toy available on the market.

Call me a spoilsport or a sourpuss. Unfortunately, many people are unaware of the legal consequences of this!

Special features of pacifier chains:



Heat cushion:

Heat pads "for abdominal pain relief" are a "Class 1 medical device - DE/CA22/119-2" and must bear the CE mark for medical devices.

Warming cushions with toy character
If the heat cushion also has a play character, e.g. through the shape of a cuddly toy, it also falls under the Toy Directive (and the associated standards) and requires the CE marking and declaration of conformity for toys.

CE for toys (sponges / washcloths)

April 18th at 07:54 - 
Question/answer on the classification of toys:

Are sponges that are specially designed for use by children and therefore have an attractive appearance always to be classified as toys?

If a bath sponge for children has one or more clear play values in addition to its use for cleaning (e.g. as a cuddly toy, panelling, vehicle), the product can also be classified as a play product i. S. v. § 2 Abs. 6 Nr. 5 LFGB and/or as toys i. S. v. § 2 Nr. 24a of the 2. ProdSV to be classified.

This classification can also be transferred to washcloths in animal form!
