ISO Meetings Explore Possible Revisions to International Toy Standard
30 October 2013
The International Organization for Standardization(ISO) Technical Committee on Toy Safety (ISO TC 181) held meetings in Sao Paulo, Brazil 21-25 October to discuss possible revisions to the international toy standard ISO 8124.
Representatives of industry and product safety agencies from more than a dozen countries discussed test methods and requirements for finger paints, cords, total concentration of elements, phthalates, and a number of other subjects.
During the week, a joint meeting was also held between ISO TC 181 and ASTM Subcommittee F15.22, which is responsible for the U.S. toy safety standard ASTM F963. This discussion allowed both technical committees to keep the other aware of ongoing work with a goal toward fostering greater standards alignment.
ICTI members will be kept apprised if updates to the ISO toy safety standard are approved.
