China Steps Up Supervision of Toys and School Supplies

The toys and academic supplies (including stationery and school uniforms) distributed across the mainland are to come under greater scrutiny following the publication of a new directive from The General Office of the State Administration for Market Regulation.

Among the priorities and key measures identified in this strategy document – The 2019 Work Plan for the Children and School Supplies Safety Protection Campaign – are the following:

  • More rigorous inspection of six product categories listed in the Catalogue of Products Subject to CCC Certification, including plastic, metal and electronic toys. The primary focus here will be on determining if any products been dispatched for sale from their point of manufacture without first securing the requisite certification
  • An enhanced focus on testing for chemical hazards, including the use of excess plasticisers and the migration extent of certain potentially harmful elements. At the same time, an assessment will be made as to whether any small easily-detachable components, sharp edges / points or any bindings / ties employed contravene mandatory safety requirements
  • In the case of any category of toy listed in the Catalogue of Products Subject to CCC Certification, certification institutions will be obliged to verify that all actual supplied raw materials are consistent with those previously listed / ordered
