Protecting children is the major concern of parents around the world. Ensuring that they play with toys that do not and cannot harm them is a must in any country. In term of home products, toys safety regulations (just after cosmetics) are amongst the most stringent ones.

Toys lab testing requires both mechanical and chemical expertise. Our extensive knowledge in both of these fields provides you with access to the-state-of-the-art equipment and knowledgeable staff.

Our Certified Solutions

API can currently provide you with:

  • HOKLAS endorsed lab testing reports based on the EN 71 1,2,3 and EN 62115
  • HKIAS endorsed third party inspection based on an in-house procedure
  • European Notified Body endorsed report by our French lab Albhades Provence, a member company of the Worms group.

What are the benefits of using a notified body?

A Notified Body verifies the compliance of a product by conducting conformity assessment. It also ensures that the technical documentation sufficiently supports product compliance.

When the Notified Body is convinced of a product's compliance, it issues a certificate of conformity to confirm this. Only a notified body is entitled to do so. (Source: European Commission Enterprise and Industry CE marking).
