Since 2011 the EU Directive 2011/65/EU - known as RoHS II - requires:

  • One of the important changes is that toys with at least one intended electrical function (electrical power/electromagnetic field) is covered. This means that all electrical toys have to fulfill RoHS II Directive.
  • CE mark is required for all electrical equipment covered by RoHS II. Thus, CE labeled electrical toys have to comply with RoHS II Directive.
