Greater Regulation for Magnetic Toys

As of today, comes into force new regulations in which the European Union prohibits the commercialization of magnetic toys that don’t have one labels that you warn of risks that it may present health and safety, also for children older than three years.

It foresees that this law primarily affects the products that come from countries in the process of development, which are the ones with more lax laws and less quality and safety controls. Toys that will monitor this rule are those which may contain one or more magnets or magnetic components that it may break off and be ingested by children.

Today regulation focused on the components of toys, whether magnetic or not. It established that products intended for children under 36 months would have to be large enough to avoid ingestion. This seemed a measure of inadequate security, and thought it must have its review.
The label will have to carry a phrase to be seen easily and that is similar to this “attention. This toy contains magnets or magnetic components. The union of magnets or a metallic object inside the human body can cause serious or fatal injury. If you have swallowed or inhaled the magnets, seek medical attention immediately”.

The downside of this law is its duration, only will be valid for 12 months with possibility of extension. Why are the great differences that exist between the laws of the countries of the European Union. Until they are more uniform among themselves, this measure may not be permanent.

Between 2006 and April 2007, the number of accidents with this kind of toys, which required medical treatment amounted to 32 cases, in children aged between 10 months and 12 years, figure not insignificant when we talk about risks as aspiration in the lung or perforation of bowel.

Since the implementation of this rule makes only a few hours, already the first cases have been detected. Consumers FACUA Association has denounced the sale of ten products after the completion of a first poll in five children’s stores.
