The EN-71 standards apply to toys that are intended for children up to the age of fourteen. EN 71 has specifics sections covering the suitability of toys for various ages, including a range of notifications for toys that are unsuitable for children under three years old.

The legislation is divided into several sections covering various aspects of safety, but, for the majority of toys, there are three pertinent parts.

– EN 71-1: Mechanical and Physical Properties includes testing to avoid the detachment of ‘small parts’ that could cause choking hazards, and other testing to detect sharp points, and cutting edges that could lead to injuries.
