EN71-1 2011 was recently updated with amendment A2:2013 incorporated into the standard.

The major change of A2 is the update to the acoustic requirements of clause 4.20, with new requirements for toys not previously within the scope of testing now included, such as percussion toys and wind toys e.g. drums, whistles, and xylophones. Revised test methods have also been introduced for voice toys such as megaphones and walkie-talkies.

All toys that deliberately produce sounds are now required to be assessed, and have been categorized into 11 product types and 3 exposure categories:

  • Close-to-the-ear toys
  • Table-top or floor toys
  • Hand-held toy
  • Toys using headphones or earphones
  • Rattles
  • Squeeze toys
  • Pull-along or push toys
  • Percussion toys
  • Wind toys
  • Cap-firing toys
  • Voice toys
  • Exposure category 1: Toys emitting sound during time periods typically longer than 30 s after each initiation;
  • Exposure category 2: Toys emitting sound during time periods typically shorter than 30 s but longer than 5 s after each initiation;
  • Exposure category 3: Toys emitting sound during time periods typically shorter than 5 s after each initiation;

 

Limits have been revised, with some categories of toys now having more stringent acoustic levels than before. Test methods have also been updated.
