Quality and product safety are essential in the EU and in particularly the toy industry. Companies that produce or trades with toys should have a very well functioning quality management team ensuring quality & safety of all relevant product are in compliance to the EU requirement.  

As most of the toys on the European market are actually produced in the far East and in particulary in China, the quality assurance functions will be aggravated as in many cases there are communcation issues between buyer and supplier or lack of technical knowledge on EU requirement.     

DVSI   co-operates with SGS – CRS & JagoProjektbetreuung with the support of The Sino-German Working Group on Product Safety, aiming to implement the high European quality standards into the Chinese Toy industry thus lowering technical barriers for a better trading between German Buyers and Chinese Manufacturer.   

The Training seminar covers a variety of topics not only the EU standards but also about the Legal basics and law enforcements in the EU, as well as Quality Management.   

The ultimate Goal is to harmonise the quality standards between Germany and China.
