Using childcare articles should hold no fears, for children or their parents. In this webinar, we will explore the provisions of the French Regulation and the requirements that protect some of our most vulnerable consumers – young children.
Since publication of the Decree in 1991, the conditions of application of this regulation have been updated, to take into account a European Market and the development of new products, new functions.
This webinar will give you the principles and requirements of the regulation applicable in France, and the background of safety philosophy as well as tools to assess the safety of the articles you place on the Market.
Through questions that are frequently asked we will tackle following important aspects:
Origins of the regulation:
- Status in a European context
- Safety requirements:
- Requirements of the Decree
- Standards availability
- Type examination:
- Technical File, documentation required
- Articles out of the scope
Who Should Join?
This webinar will be of benefit to retailers, brand owners, designers and manufacturers of childcare articles.
