Yangcheng Evening News Reporter Ma Hanqing, intern Zhang Qiujia, correspondent Guangdong National Inspection and Quarantine Report: How to reasonably limit the plasticizer in toys to ensure the health and safety of children and the durability and flexibility of toys? The Guangdong Inspection and Quarantine Bureau recently notified that the relevant international standards led by my country and formulated under the auspices of the bureau have been formally implemented. This is the first time that my country has gained the right to speak in the formulation of international toy standardization. According to reports, plasticizers, also known as plasticizers, are chemicals that can soften plastics and are commonly used in toys, food packaging materials, detergents, and lubricants. And personal care products and other products. However, some types of plasticizers have now been gradually proven to be estrogen-like hormones. Toys and children's products that contain excessive use of such plasticizers will endanger the health and safety of children. But at the same time, if the use is completely prohibited within a safe range, it is difficult to ensure the durability and flexibility of toy children's products, and it will greatly increase production costs. The Guangdong Inspection and Quarantine Bureau stated that on similar issues, the production process of Chinese export toy companies has always been subject to the standards of other countries. In terms of production technology, quality control, and standard research, they have been led by the nose in the international community for a long time. The huge risk of production cost and quality recovery. In order to break through this problem, the National Standardization Administration and the Inspection Department of the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine launched the toy plasticizer standard project ISO8124-6 led by the Toy Laboratory of the Technology Center of the Guangdong Inspection and Quarantine Bureau. After unremitting efforts, the standard was officially released by ISO (International Organization for Standardization) on the 15th. This is the first time that China has presided over the development of international standards for toys, and it is also the first time that the Guangdong Entry-Exit Inspection and Quarantine Bureau presided over the development of international standards.
