American ASTM F963
ASTM F963 "Toy Safety" is the most important toy safety standard in the United States, and it is also a toy safety standard with great international influence. This standard is a voluntary non-mandatory standard. Although it is a voluntary standard, in commercial practice, toys that do not meet ASTM F963 cannot enter the US market.
This standard makes technical requirements and test methods for toys used by children of all age groups under the age of 14. The standard addresses hazards that may not be readily recognized by the public and that toys may encounter following normal use or reasonably foreseeable abuse. This standard only stipulates the safety performance of toy products, but does not involve the performance and quality of toy products. In addition to the functional hazards of the toy indicated by the labeling requirements and the age group for which the toy is suitable, the standard does not require inherent and recognized hazards in the toy that are manifested as functional effects, such as the point being inherent in the function of a needle.
ASTM F963 is formulated according to the mandatory requirements of the US federal regulations. Generally speaking, the content of the standard fully includes the relevant technical requirements of CPSC 16CFR. Manufacturers can ensure that the products meet the requirements of ASTM F963, which basically meets the requirements of CPSC 16CFR. Regarding technical requirements, but in order to ensure that the products meet the requirements of CPSC 16 CFR, toy manufacturers should pay attention to the requirements of CPSC 16 CFR and its changes in time while ensuring that the products meet the requirements of ASTM F 963 to ensure that the products meet the requirements of US law .
The main technical requirements of ASTM F963 include mechanical and physical safety, combustion performance, chemical toxicity, electrical safety and microbiological safety.
