Toy Safety and Certification

Deliver safe, compliant toy products to market with market-leading testing, inspection, certification, audit and compliance services.

Toy products are highly regulated. Safety standards are constantly updated and modified as the understanding of risks increases and new products are developed. It is essential to understand the legal requirements that apply to toys (including national deviations) and to be up to date to avoid non-conforming products and market recalls.

At SGS, we help all toy suppliers – manufacturers, retailers and importers – assess the potential risks at every stage of the toy life cycle and manage them effectively and efficiency.
