At present, my country's toy safety standard is GB6675-2003 (National Toy Safety Technical Specification), which is a national mandatory standard. In terms of technical requirements, it is equivalent to ISO8124-1:2000 (toy safety machinery and physical properties), ISO8124-2:1994 (safety combustion performance of toys) and ISO8124-3: 1997 (migration of specific elements in toy safety); on May 6, 2014, China Quality Supervision Bureau and National Standards Committee released the latest version of GB6675 - 2014 "Toy Safety" National Standard, the new toy safety standard strengthens the safety and quality standards for toys sold in China, which was officially implemented on January 1, 2016. The new standard applies to toys and materials for children under the age of 14 to play with. The new standard has four new regulations for toy safety, as follows:
1. GB6675-1 Basic Specifications
• Outlines basic safety requirements such as electrical safety, hygiene and radiation conditions.
• Added specific requirements for 6 plasticizers.
2. GB6675-2 physical and mechanical properties
• Added a new specification on the prevention of hearing loss.
• Added specific requirements on magnets and magnetic parts to prevent damage to magnetic parts and magnetic materials caused by accidental ingestion by children.
3. GB6675-3 Flammability • Revised the specific provisions on the specifications and test methods of stuffed toys.
• Newly added "Regulations on the flammability of molded masks in whole or in part" and "Regulations on the flammability of related flickers on head-mounted toys", mainly with specific requirements for their burning speed.
4. GB6675-4 on the migration of specific elements has expanded the scope of migratory hazardous substances, as follows
• All toys suitable for children under 72 months.
• Applies to all toys intended for food or mouth contact, cosmetic toys, and writing implements classified as toys, regardless of age group or recommended age indicator.
• Applies to accessible coatings, accessible liquids, gels, and pastes, regardless of age group or recommended age designation.
The GB6675 standard applies to all toys, that is, all products or materials designed or intended for children under the age of 14 to play. In terms of "mechanical and physical properties", Chinese toys are similar to the EU toy standards.
GB6675 mainly includes: mechanical and physical properties, migration of specific elements of combustion properties, toy markings and instructions for use markings
