The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (ACCC) has announced their review of mandatory safety standards for children’s toys.

Review of the safety standards for children’s toys

The review aims to ensure that the current safety standards are effective and still address the safety hazards for children’s toys. Specifically, the review intends to gather information on the following policy options:

  • Option1: Retain the current mandatory safety standards
  • Option 2: Adopt parts of the updated voluntary Australian standards
  • Option 3: Allow compliance with the voluntary Australian or trusted international standards
  • Option 3a: Principles-based mandatory safety standard
  • Option 4: Revoke the mandatory safety standards

End of Consultation Period: March 31, 2017
