This International Standard is intended to assist organizations in contributing to sustainable development. It is
intended to encourage them to go beyond legal compliance, recognizing that compliance with law is a
fundamental duty of any organization and an essential part of their social responsibility. It is intended to
promote common understanding in the field of social responsibility, and to complement other instruments and
initiatives for social responsibility, not to replace them.
In applying this International Standard, it is advisable that an organization take into consideration societal,
environmental, legal, cultural, political and organizational diversity, as well as differences in economic
conditions, while being consistent with international norms of behaviour.
This International Standard is not a management system standard. It is not intended or appropriate for
certification purposes or regulatory or contractual use. Any offer to certify, or claims to be certified, to
ISO 26000 would be a misrepresentation of the intent and purpose and a misuse of this International Standard.
As this International Standard does not contain requirements, any such certification would not be a
demonstration of conformity with this International Standard.
This International Standard is intended to provide organizations with guidance concerning social responsibility
and can be used as part of public policy activities. However, for the purposes of the Marrakech Agreement
establishing the World Trade Organization (WTO), it is not intended to be interpreted as an “international
standard”, “guideline” or “recommendation”, nor is it intended to provide a basis for any presumption or finding
that a measure is consistent with WTO obligations. Further, it is not intended to provide a basis for legal
actions, complaints, defences or other claims in any international, domestic or other proceeding, nor is it
intended to be cited as evidence of the evolution of customary international law.
This International Standard is not intended to prevent the development of national standards that are more
specific, more demanding, or of a different type.

SLNS/ISO 8124-1: 2012 Safety of Toys Part 1 – Safety Aspects Related to Mechanical and Physical Properties The requirements in ISO 8124-1:2012 apply to all toys, i.e. any product or material designed or clearly intended for use in play by children under 14 years of age. They are applicable to a toy as it is initially received by the consumer and, in addition, they apply after a toy is subjected to reasonably foreseeable conditions of normal use and abuse unless specifically noted otherwise.

The requirements of ISO 8124-1:2012 specify acceptable criteria for structural characteristics of toys, such as shape, size, contour and spacing as well as acceptable criteria for properties peculiar to certain categories of toy.

ISO 8124-1:2012 specifies requirements and test methods for toys intended for use by children in various age groups from birth to 14 years. The requirements vary according to the age group for which a particular toy is intended. The requirements for a particular age group reflect the nature of the hazards and the expected mental and/or physical abilities of a child to cope with them.

SLNS/ISO 8124-2: 2007 Safety of Toys Part 2- Flammability ISO 8124-2:2007 specifies the categories of flammable materials that are prohibited in all toys, and requirements concerning flammability of certain toys when they are subjected to a minor source of ignition.

The test methods described are used for the purposes of determining the flammability of toys under the particular test conditions specified. The test results thus obtained cannot be considered as providing an overall indication of the potential fire hazard of toys or materials when subjected to other sources of ignition.

ISO 8124-2:2007 includes general requirements relating to all toys and specific requirements and methods of test relating to the following toys, which are considered as being those presenting the greatest hazard:

toys to be worn on the head: beards, moustaches, wigs, etc., made from hair, pile or material with similar features; molded and fabric masks; hoods, head-dresses, etc.; flowing elements of toys to be worn on the head, but excluding paper novelty hats of the type usually supplied in party crackers;
toy disguise costumes and toys intended to be worn by a child in a play;
toys intended to be entered by a child;
soft-filled toys (animals and dolls, etc.) with a piled surface or textile surface.

SLNS/ISO 8124-3: 2012 Safety of Toys Part 3- Migration of Certain Elements ISO 8124-3:2010 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.

Maximum acceptable levels are specified for the migration of the elements listed above from the following toy materials:

coatings of paints, varnishes, lacquers, printing inks, polymers and similar coatings;
polymeric and similar materials, including laminates, whether textile-reinforced or not, but excluding other textiles and non-woven textiles;
paper and paperboard, up to a maximum mass per unit area of 400 g/m2;
natural, artificial or synthetic textiles;
glass/ceramic/metallic materials, excepting lead solder when used for electrical connections;
other materials, whether mass-coloured or not (e.g. wood, fibreboard, hardboard, bone and leather);
