The European Commission has announced that the permitted levels of bisphenol A in toys is reduced to 1 mg/L (migration limit). This covers toys which are intended to be placed in a child’s mouth.
Bisphenol A is strongly suspected of being an endocrine disrupting chemical (EDC). This reduction places increased responsibility on analytical measurement laboratories to be able to detect and quantify accurately bisphenol A in toys in order to assist in effective enforcement.
