Toy Industry Association (TIA) Statement on Chemicals in Toys
October 26, 2012
All toys sold in the U.S. must comply with numerous environmental and safety laws that protect children. It is illegal to sell toys or children’s products containing substances known to be harmful to children and to which children might be exposed.
Safety is the toy industry’s top priority. Members of the toy industry work alongside medical experts, and government and consumer representatives to establish, maintain and comply with stringent toy safety standards and regulations that consider a product’s intended use .… and to strengthen those standards when supported by science.
The Toy Industry Association and its members strongly support science-based requirements that can help improve or reinforce the safety of toys. Safety is our industry’s number one priority.
