According to Rati Oboladze, the Deputy Head of the Technical and Construction Supervision Agency, a directive on toy safety should be introduced by the end of the year. According to him, consultations with relevant business representatives are underway.
Oboladze said that the main requirement is that the toy should not be dangerous for the consumer. Toys should not include health hazardous chemical elements and maximum migration thresholds should be set.
According to Oboladze the toys will undergo both documented and physical checking.
“First of all, documentary controls will be made to see if all the necessary files are attached to the toy, including certificates, warning signs and instructions for safe use", Oboladze said.
