A consultation on a Government proposal to adopt up-to-date safety standards for toys and eight types of children's products designated under the Toys & Children's Products Safety Ordinance has launched.
Eight types of children's products referred to in the proposal are babies' dummies, walking frames, bunk beds, safety barriers, cots, paints, playpens, and wheeled conveyances, the Commerce & Economic Development Bureau said.
The ordinance stipulates that no one can manufacture, import or supply any toy or designated children's product unless it complies in all respects with the safety standards listed in the ordinance. The stipulated standards are mostly international standards or those adopted in major economies.
People can send their views to the bureau by email
