Regulatory Testing As Standard 

As part of the production build quality is of extreme importance to us. Likewise so is the safety of the products we have produced. Blue Bear insures its product safety to £5m GBP as standard but also produces independent safety testing certificates for each of its range of items. These are then retested every 3 years. The following codes are the codes provided by industry for the testing of children’s clothing and accessories. We also keep up to date to ensure that any changes to regulations or requirements are also added to the testing criteria of products and packaging.

 

  • EN71.1

  • EN71.2

  • EN71.3

  • REACH – azo dyes, phthalates and cadmium where applicable

  • Colourfastness should also be tested for

  • Care Labels (Washing labels) 

  • Age application

  • CE marking

  • 0-3 choking hazard

  • keep away from fire

  • Items also require batch number. 

The factories manufacturing these will also require ethical audits.
