On September 4, 2023, the Australian government released a new mandatory safety standard for children's toys, the "2023 Consumer Goods (Children's Toys Under 36 Months) Safety Standard". This safety standard specifies the requirements for toys for children under 36 months of age. Suppliers must transition to the requirements of the new mandatory standards before March 4, 2025.

 

This safety standard adopts Australian voluntary standards and similar overseas standards, aiming to minimize the risk of suffocation caused by small parts in toys for young children, thereby preventing serious injury or death, and introducing new requirements for toy battery boxes.

 

This safety standard allows compliance with one of the following toy safety standards:
·Australian/New Zealand Standard AS/NZS ISO 8124.1:2023 "Toy Safety Part 1: Mechanical and Physical Properties"
·International standard ISO 8124-1:2022 "Toy safety - Part 1: Mechanical and physical properties"
·European standard EN 71-1:2014+A1:2018 "Toy safety - Part 1: Mechanical and physical properties"
·American Standard ASTM F963-17 "Toy Safety Standard Specification"

 

In addition, electric toys must comply with some of the requirements of the Australian/New Zealand standard AS/NZS 62115:2018 "Safety of Electric Toys" to ensure that children of this age group cannot open the battery box or remove the battery without using tools. In addition, if children's toys under 36 months old contain button batteries, they also need to comply with mandatory safety standards related to button battery products.
