The European Union has issued Resolution (EU) 2023/1338 to regulate the safety of children's products and related products



The European Union has issued Resolution (EU) 2023/1338 to regulate the safety of children's products and related products, which came into effect on July 20, 2023.

Recently, the European Commission released Resolution (EU) 2023/1338 in its official gazette, which sets out safety requirements for certain children's products and related products, effective July 20, 2023. Children's products such as toys, baby bottles, and baby strollers already have corresponding coordinated standards (EN71 series, EN14350, EN1888, etc.), meeting these coordinated standards and other EU chemical control requirements can meet the requirements of (EU) Resolution 2023/1338. Other children's products that currently do not have relevant product standards, such as children's toilets and step stools, also need to meet the relevant requirements of (EU) Resolution 2023/1338.
