:1.1 This part of ISO 8124 specifies maximum acceptable levels and methods of sampling and extraction prior to analysis
for the migration of the elements antimony, arsenic, barium, cadmium, chromium, lead, mercury and selenium from toy
materials and from parts of toys, except materials not accessible (see ISO 8124-1).
1.2 Maximum acceptable levels are specified for the migration of the elements listed in 1.1 from the following toy
-- coatings of paints, varnishes, lacquers, printing inks, polymers and similar coatings (see 8.1);
-- polymeric and similar materials, including laminates, whether textile-reinforced or not, but excluding other
textiles (see 8.2);
-- paper and paper board, up to a maximum mass per unit area of 400 g/m2 (see 8.3);
-- natural or synthetic textiles (see 8.4);
-- glass/ceramic/metallic materials, excepting lead solder when used for electrical connections (see 8.5);
-- other materials
, whether mass-coloured or not (e.g. wood, fibreboard, hardboard, bone and leather) (see 8.6);
-- materials intended to leave a trace (e.g. the graphite materials in pencils and liquid ink in pens) (see 8.7);
-- pliable modelling materials, including modelling clays, and gels (see 8.8);
-- paints to be used as such in the toy, including finger paints, varnishes, lacquers, glazing powders and similar
materials in solid or liquid form (see 8.9).
1.3 For the purposes of this part of ISO 8124, the following criteria are considered appropriate in the categorization of
toys which can be sucked, licked or swallowed:
-- all intended food/oral contact toys, cosmetic toys and writing instruments categorized as toys;
-- toys intended for children up to six years of age, i.e. all accessible parts and components where there is a
probability that those parts or components may come into contact with the mouth (see annex D).
Toys and parts of toys which, due to their accessibility, function, mass, size or other characteristics, obviously
exclude any hazard due to sucking, licking or swallowing, bearing in mind the normal and foreseeable behaviour of
children, are not covered by this part of ISO 8124.
1.4 Packaging materials are not included unless they are part of the toy or have intended play value (see annex D).
