AU/NZL Regulations of toy safety

Australia & New Zealand’s requirements for toys are mainly embodied in the AS/NZS ISO 8124 series standard. For electric toys, it should also meet the related safety requirements of AS/NZS 62115. In addition, Australia has issued a series of mandatory standards and injunction notices under the Australian Consumer Protection Act and the Trade Act, which also involve related safety requirements for toys.
