Toy Industry Association (TIA) Statement on the Safety of Toys Made Outside of the United States
October 29, 2013
Consumers have every reason to trust the safety of the three billion toys sold in America each year. All toys sold in the U.S., regardless of where they are made, must comply with strict U.S. standards. It is the responsibility of the companies selling products in this country to make sure that those toys are safe. Regular testing by government-approved independent laboratories provides an additional verification of a company’s compliance with strict U.S. federal regulations.
This statement was originally published in September 2012 and was reaffirmed by the Toy Industry Association in October 2013.
