Toy Safety Regulations – Info Session

The Malta Standards Authority (MSA) and MEUSAC are organising an information session on the new legal provisions that will apply to persons involved in the manufacture, importation or distribution of toys.

 

The current EU Toy Directive (88/378/EEC) was enacted more than 20 years ago. Therefore, the directive in its present form can no longer provide comprehensive coverage for toy safety. The new Toy Directive (2009/48/EC) was published in 2009 and comes into force this July. The provisions relating to new chemical requirements will be effective from July 2013 onwards.

Users and interested organisations are invited to attend for this information session. Safety issues covered include physical, chemical, electrical and hygiene risks in toys.

The session, which will be conducted in Maltese, is being held as follows:

Date: Tuesday, February 22        Time: 14:00 – 15:30         Venue: Europe House, 254 St Paul Street, Valletta
