Hong Kong Holds Consultation on New Safety Standards for Toys and Children’s Products

Hong Kong held a one-month consultation in December
2021 over its proposal to adopt new safety standards for toys and six
categories of children’s product.

Under the territory’s Toys and Children’s Products
Safety Ordinance these products are obliged to comply with all applicable
requirements in a defined set of safety standards. The Ordinance contains Schedule
1 – toy standards – and Schedule 2 – product standards.

The standards used in the Ordinance are either
international standards or those adopted by major economies. Recent revisions
to these standards have necessitated the need to update the list of mandated
