Support for making and selling toys

A Trading Standards package of support for businesses that make and sell toys.

If you are thinking about starting a business making toys, did you know there is a range of legislation you must follow to ensure that what you make and sell is safe?

The legal requirements can be complex but we are here to help. We can provide you with a comprehensive package of support to help you comply with regulations and build a successful business. This is part of our paid-for business support.

Our toolkit offers links to resources to meet your business needs. Using this resource, you will be in the best position to succeed and grow your business.

It provides step-by-step guidance through all the legal requirements for the safe manufacture of toys to help you succeed.

The toolkit includes information, guidance and resources on:

  • CE marking.
  • Technical files.
  • Product development and labelling.
  • Hazards and age restrictions.
  • Complaints and recall procedures.

In addition it contains guidance to help you to make safe products, links to legislation and more.

The price includes an hour of one-to-one expertise from a Trading Standards Officer who will guide you through the information and your obligations.

Getting compliance right from the start can save you time and money, helping you to develop a successful business. By coming to us, you’ll know you’re receiving expert advice and support from those who enforce the legislation.

The toolkit is designed for businesses based in England.

The cost will be equivalent to one hour of Officer time – see our fees and charges.
