Toys shall be manufactured to safety levels and can be placed on the market only if they do not compromise the health and/or safety of users or other persons when used in compliance with their intended use.
When the CE marking is applied to the toy, the manufacturer or his authorized representative certifies, under his own responsibility, that the toy has been manufactured in compliance with the essential requirements set out in Annex II of the directive; toys not bearing the CE marking shall not be placed on the market.
Toys manufactured in compliance with harmonized standards and applicable directives and regulations shall be presumed to be in conformity with these essential requirements.
The EC-Type examination is the procedure by which an Authorized Body certifies and attests that a toy meets the essential safety requirements by issuing an EC examination certificate. MTIC InterCert is notified by the European Community with EC 0068 for this certification.
