Eurofins ATS is now EU Notified Body for Safety of Toys

 

Eurofins ATS has recently been designated by the Products Regulatory Office of the Ministry of Economy, industry and digital (Ministère de l'économie, de l'industrie et du numérique – DGE – Bureau de la réglementation des produits) as Notified Body (NB 2817) in the framework of the Conformity Assessment procedures described in the European Toys Safety Directive 2009/48/EC.

Our Notified Body will be able to carry out tasks related to conformity assessment procedures set out in the Directive, when a third party is required.

As a Notified Body, Eurofins ATS will perform Conformity Assessment Procedures, also known as EC-type examination, and issue EC-type examination certificates. The EC-type examination procedures should be carried out when:

  • harmonized standards do not exist;
  • harmonized standards have not or only partly been applied by a manufacturer;
  • one or more harmonized standards have been published with a restriction; or
  • the manufacturer considers that the nature, design, construction or purpose of the toy requires third party verification.
