BIS Certification For Safety of Toys IS 9873 Part 9 Certain Phthalates Esters in Toys and Children’s Products.

Introduction

Phthalates enhance the flexibility and durability of plastics, but certain types have been found harmful to children if ingested. India recently introduced IS 9873 Part 9, restricting six phthalates to curb their usage in toys and children's products. Companies must conduct extensive testing to demonstrate compliance for selling safe products in India.

MANDATORY TESTING

Here is the list of tests conducted for the safety of toys related to certain phthalate esters in toys and children’s products:

  • Phthalate Content Test: Gives an idea of phthalates' presence and the degree of their prevalence.

  • Migration Test: Assesses whether phthalates migrate from the toy material to saliva or other liquids.

  • Extraction Test: Measures the amount of phthalates extracted from the toy material.

  • Total Phthalate Esters Test: Cumulative Concentration of All Phthalate Esters.

  • Specific Phthalate Esters Tests: Impartial tests for some classes of monoethyl phthalate (e.g., DEHP, DBP, DINP, etc.).

  • The tests are implemented to maintain compliance with safety standards and provide a safe environment for the kids.
