The old standards EN71-2:2011 + A1:2014 (part 2), and EN71-3:2019 (part 3) are no longer valid. In effect, this updated list is important to all manufacturers of CE-marked products that have used European harmonized standards to prove CE compliance according to these regulations. So, did you test your toys according to one or both of these standards? You need to update your files. Possibly, you also need to have the toys retested.

Our post on Product Compliance Manager (in the ‘news and announcements’-section) outlines the changes for your convenience. Possibly, this publication is only available to subscribers.
