The European Commission have published a new Regulation (681/2013) which amends the EU Toy Directive (2009/48/EC).

This Regulation changes the maximum permitted levels of barium in toys as follows:

1500 mg/kg in dry, brittle, power-like or pliable toy material
375 mg/kg in liquid or sticky toy material
18750 mg/kg in scraped-off toy material

Although laboratories in the EU will need to be able to measure at these new levels, this should not cause any issues due to the still relatively high levels in the new Regulation.
