ČSN EN 71-3
The regulation ČSN EN 71-3 considers the safety of toys designated for children under the age of 14. It focuses on the migration of elements – in other words, it is testing if dangerous elements such as antimony, arsenic, barium, cadmium, chromium, lead, mercury, selenium and esters of phtalate acid, so called phthalates, used as softeners in plastics production, do not enter the child´s body by direct contact with their skin, perspiration or saliva. The objects of investigation are primarily rim and frame paints, handles of handlebars, the surface of the seat and pedals, etc.
The update of this norm from 2013 extends the number of observed elements and adjusts its limit values considering new scientific findings and technological development of toys in production and manufacture.
