Germany's legal action against the European Toy Safety Directive’s chemical restrictions: recent developments

March 2014

Hogan Lovells International Product Liability Review, 54/2014
Germany imposes stricter limits on the presence in toys of certain chemicals than those that have been introduced by the new EU Toy Safety Directive 2009/48/EC (“TSD”1). German consumers, as well as consumer protection authorities and organisations, believe that the new limit values in the TSD could negatively influence toy safety in Germany. In particular, they fear that toys will enter the German market from other Member States which do not comply with the stricter German chemical limits.
