Toys

The safety evaluation of toys includes several aspects, as e.g. physical/mechanical properties and chemical safety. At WTC we have more than 20 years experience in the chemical safety assessment of toys.
As neutral third party service provider between the suppliers of raw materials and intermediates used in the manufacture of toys, and the manufacturer of the toys, we can get access to (confidential) compositional information based on secrecy agreements signed with the involved parties. This information forms the basis of the safety evaluation and of the development of a likely test program for evaluation of compliance with any limitations or for determining the possible exposure to certain chemicals.
