Certification of childcare articles in the European Union is voluntary. CERTIFICATE issued by an independent conformity assessment body is one of the ways to provide additional guarantees for business partners and customers on the safety and quality of the products offered on the market. This is particularly important in situations when children's products are manufactured outside the EU.
Certification of child use and care articles is carried out based on assessment of the documentation submitted and product sample testing results. When applying for children's product certification, the applicant has the option to choose a wider or narrower scope of test requirements. Certification is available for a wide range of children's products, such as soothers, soother holders, child cutlery and feeding utensils, drinking equipment, child sleepwear, children’s hooded outdoor wear, child care products and other children's products.
