The revision to the Toy Safety Act has now moved to a second reading and incorporates stricter European safety norms for toys, as well as putting more responsibility on the producers and importers of toys.

The bill also specifies the chemicals and harmful substances that are prohibited in toys being placed on the market. If pushed through, the law will take effect from February 2012 and impose fines of up to EUR 50,000 for violations.
