1 Modification to the Scope

In the 6 paragraph, replace "EN 50088, Safety of electric toys" with "EN 62115, Electric toys - Safety".

2 Modification to Clause 3
Add the following definitions:
3.43
magnetic component

any part of a toy which contains an attached or fully or partially enclosed magnet

3.44
magnetic/electrical experimental set

toy containing one or more magnets intended for carrying out educational experiments involving magnetism

and electricity
3.45
functional magnet in electrical or electronic components of toys

any magnet necessary for the function of motors, relays, speakers and other electrical or electronic

components in a toy where the magnetic properties are not part of the play pattern of the toy"

3 Addition of 4.23
Add the following subclause 4.23:
4.23 Magnets (see A.51)
4.23.1 General

The requirements in 4.23.2 do not apply to functional magnets in electrical or electronic components of toys.

The requirement in 4.23.3 does not apply to magnetic/electrical experimental sets in which all magnets have a

2 2 2 2

magnetic flux index less than 50 kG mm (0,5 T mm ) when tested according to 8.35 (magnetic flux index), or

do not fit entirely in the cylinder when tested according to 8.2 (small parts cylinder).

4.23.2 Toys other than magnetic/electrical experimental sets

a) Any loose as-received magnet(s) and magnetic component(s) shall either have a magnetic flux index

2 2 2 2

less than 50 kG mm (0,5 T mm ) when tested according to 8.35 (magnetic flux index), or shall not fit

entirely in the cylinder when tested according to 8.2 (small parts cylinder).

b) Any magnet(s) and magnetic component(s) that become(s) released from a toy when tested

according to 8.3 (torque test), 8.4.2.1 (tension test, general), 8.4.2.2 (tension test, seams and

materials), 8.5 (drop test), 8.7 (impact test), 8.8 (compression test), and finally, for magnets that are

accessible but not grippable (as specified in 8.4.2.1), 8.34 (tension test for magnets), shall either have

2 2 2 2

a magnetic flux index less than 50 kG mm (0,5 T mm ) when tested according to 8.35 (magnetic flux

index), or shall not fit entirely in the cylinder when tested according to 8.2 (small parts cylinder).

EN 71-1:2005/prA8:2008 (E)

NOTE An example of a magnet that is accessible but not grippable could be a magnet that is recessed.

c) Wooden toys, toys intended to be used in water, and mouth-actuated toys shall be tested according to

8.9 (soaking test) before being tested according to 4.23.2 b) above.
4.23.3 Magnetic/electrical experimental sets

Magnetic/electrical experimental sets intended for children over 8 years shall carry a warning (see 7.19)."

4 Modification to 7.14
Amend the title of 7.14 to read as follows:
"Acoustics (see 4.19 and 4.20 f))".
5 Addition of 7.19
Add the following subclause 7.19:
7.19 Magnetic/electrical experimental sets (see 4.23 and A.51)

The packaging and the instructions for use of magnetic/electrical experimental sets shall carry the following

warning:

“WARNING! Not suitable for children under 8 years. This product contains (a) small magnets(s).

Swallowed magnets can stick together across intestines causing serious injuries. Seek immediate

medical attention if magnet(s) are swallowed”.

This warning is not required for magnetic/electrical experimental sets in which all magnets have a magnetic

2 2 2 2

flux index less than 50 kG mm (0,5 T mm ) when tested according to 8.35 (magnetic flux index), or do not fit

entirely in the cylinder when tested according to 8.2 (small parts cylinder)."
6 Addition of 8.34
Add the following subclause 8.34:
8.34 Tension test for magnets (see A.51)
8.34.1 Principle

Either a magnet or a magnetic component, or a reference disc, is used in order to test whether an accessible

but not grippable magnet in the toy can be detached by a magnetic pulling force.
The test shall simulate the intended or a reasonably foreseeable play pattern.

8.34.2 Toys that contain more than one magnet or magnetic component

Identify the magnet or magnetic component in the toy that is most likely to be able to detach the magnet that is

to be subjected to the tension test.

Without damaging the toy, place the magnet or magnetic component as close as possible to the magnet to be

tested. Gradually apply a pulling force to the magnet/magnetic component until it separates from the tested

magnet or until the magnet is detached from the toy. Perform the test 10 times.

Repeat the procedure for any other magnet that according to 4.23.2 shall be subjected to the tension test for

magnets.

NOTE If it is not possible to determine which magnet or magnetic component(s) in the toy that is most likely to be

able to detach the magnet that is to be subjected to the test, it is permissible to repeat the test with another magnet or

magnetic component from the toy.
8.34.3 Toys that contain one magnet only
8.34.3.1 Apparatus

A nickel disc with a minimum nickel content of 99 %, and having the following dimensions:

- diameter (30 ± 0,5) mm
- length (10 ± 0,5) mm

and having a surface roughness Ra according to EN ISO 4287 which is not greater than 0,40 µm.

8.34.3.2 Procedure

Without damaging the toy, place the flat part of the nickel disc as close as possible to the magnet to be tested.

Gradually apply a pulling force to the disc until it separates from the magnet or until the magnet is detached

from the toy. Perform the test 10 times."
