TUV Rheinland India, a subsidiary of the TUV Rheinland Group, Germany, said its laboratory at Gurugram has been accredited to test for compliance of imported toys in India.

TUV Rheinland India, a subsidiary of the TUV Rheinland Group, Germany, said its laboratory at Gurugram has been accredited to test for compliance of imported toys in India.

The accreditation by the National Accreditation Board for Testing and Calibration Laboratories is in relation to the new IS 9873: 2017, Part 1, 2, 3, and 9 and IS 15644 (Electrical Toys) safety standards for testing of imported toys in India.

The company said the accreditation is as per the new notification issued in September 2017 by the Directorate General of Foreign Trade (DGFT), that all toys imported in India must be accompanied by relevant test reports under the new IS 9873 and IS 15644 standards, subsequent to testing by a NABL accredited laboratory.

"We wholeheartedly support this quality initiative by the Government of India which would be beneficial for Indian children," said Thomas Fuhrmann, Managing Director of TUV Rheinland India.
