On July 1, Hong Kong’s 'Toys and Children’s Products Safety Regulations' came into effect. For the first time, the regulations clarified the six phthalate plasticizer limits in toys and children’s products, including all requirements. Among toys and children’s products, the concentration of the first category of phthalates (BBP, DBP, DEHP) must not be higher than 0.1%, and they cannot be completely put or multiple parts can be put into the mouth of children under 4 years of age. The concentration of the second type of phthalates (DIDP, DINP, DNOP) shall not be higher than 0.1%, etc., and requires the enforcement of additional identification signs and warning or warning labels for the above 6 plasticizers. It is reported that plasticizers are commonly used substances in the production of toys and children's products. Pigment printing, plastic accessories, and accessories of related products may contain plasticizers. Infants and young children can directly inhale them by chewing or sucking. Phthalate plasticizer is an environmental hormone. After inhalation, it can affect human body secretion, endanger male reproductive ability and promote female sexual precocity. Long-term large amount intake may cause cancer. For young children, there is a huge potential hazard.   Hong Kong is an important hub port for the global toy trade, and it is also the main export destination of Shenzhen toys. According to statistics, in 2013, the value of toys exported from Shenzhen to Hong Kong was US$449 million, accounting for 22.3% of the toys exported from Shenzhen in 2013.
