Keeping in step with regulatory changes is essential wherever you are trading and the rules for toys are particularly strict. But if you are selling to the US and/or Europe, how much do you know about current requirements?

In these two complimentary webinars, SGS experts take an in-depth look at federal, state and economic regional laws in both of these markets. The requirements for the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) in the US and the ASTM F963 standard will be explored on February 24, and on March 22 there will be an overview of selling toys to the EU, as well as the changing rules that apply following Brexit. Both of these webinars will include a Q&A session.

So whether you are new to these markets, or need a refresher, join us to learn more. These webinars are suitable for manufacturers and retailers selling toys to the US and EU markets.
