What is this standard about?

This European standard covers the whole range of electric toys from small button cell operated lights to large sit-on cars powered by lead-acid cells, and requires that they’re constructed so as not to jeopardize the health and safety of users or third parties when they’re used as intended or in a foreseeable way. Consideration has been given to reasonably foreseeable use, bearing in mind that children are not generally as careful as adults.

Who is this standard for?

Appropriately qualified and experienced people who work with toys in the follow contexts:

  • Designer
  • Manufacturer/producer
  • Test house
  • Distributor
  • Regulator
  • Buyer

Why should you use this standard? 

It specifies electrical safety requirements for toys that have at least one function dependant on electricity, toys being any product designed or clearly intended, whether or not exclusively, for use in play by children under 14 years old. 

Compliance with this standard also provides one means of conforming to the specified Particular Safety Requirements of the Toy Safety Directive 2009/48/EC, Annex II.

What’s changed since the last update?

This standard supersedes BS EN 62115:2005+A11:2012 with the implementation of CENELEC amendment A12:2015. This:

  • Adds Annex ZC on Toys generating electromagnetic fields (EMF)
  • Adds Table ZZA.1 on Coverage of essential requirements of the EU Directives
  • Modifies Criteria for reduced testing
  • Modifies Toys with protective electronic circuits
  • Adds Clause ZZB.47 on Toys generating electromagnetic fields
