This part of ISO 8124 specifies requirements for the substances and materials used in finger paints. It is applicable to finger paints only.

Notifying member: Jamaica
Protection of human health or safety; Quality requirements
This standard was previously adopted however; the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) has since published an updated version of the same standard. The adoption of the updated version of this standard is deemed necessary as children are the main consumers of toys and the protection of their health and safety is crucial.
The objective and rationale is to establish requirements locally that will minimize potential hazards associated with toys resulting from their intended play modes (normal use) as well as unintended play modes (reasonably foreseeable abuse).
This standard which promotes the protection of human health and safety will be adopted as a compulsory standard.
