Hong Kong revised safety standards for toys and children's products Aug 01, 2018

Hong Kong has amended its list of standards for safety requirements for toys and children’s products. The new standards will become effective on August 1, 2018.

On April 6, 2018, Hong Kong published a press release announcing [3] an updated list of safety standards for two categories of toys and three categories of children’s products falling under the Toys and Children’s Products Safety Ordinance (Cap. 424 [4]). According to the announcement, these standards are international standards or standards adopted by major economies (for presumption of conformity or demonstration of compliance).


On the same day as the press release announcement, Hong King published the list of new standards in the Toys and Children’s Products Safety Ordinance (Amendment of Schedules 1 and 2) Notice 2018 under Number 63 [5] to Legal Supplement No. 2 in the Hong Kong Gazette (Number 14, Volume 22).


The new standards will become effective on August 1, 2018.
