The Internal Market and Consumer Protection Committee of the European PArliament has unanimously backed stricter rules aimed at ensuring the safety of children's toys in the EU. The proposed measures include a ban on harmful chemicals, the introduction of digital product passports for toys, and compliance with safety, security, and privacy standards for digital toys.

The rules also address emerging challenges, such as the increased prevalence of online shopping and the growing use of digital technologies in toys. The objective is to reduce the circulation of unsafe toys in the EU single market and enhance protection against toy-related risks for children.

The regulations, once adopted, will be instrumental in strengthening market surveillance, customs inspections, and consumer access to safety information. The proposed changes will now proceed to a vote at an upcoming plenary session, shaping Parliament's position on toy safety in the EU.
