Introduction

It is recognised that finger paints when compared to other toy products present different risks: the ingestion of paint

material and the possibility for prolonged skin contact. Therefore, the safety limitations expressed in other parts of

EN 71 are not wholly appropriate.

In order to accommodate this risk and to reduce the risks associated with potential ingestion of paint, this part of

this European Standard specifies the ingredients that may be used in the manufacture of finger paints, and

specifies certain limitations on impurities, preservatives, migration of certain elements and other attributes.

It is intended to reduce the risks which may be presented to a child when finger paints are used as intended or in a

foreseeable way, bearing in mind the normal behaviour of children.

Chemical Abstract Service Registry Number (CAS), European Inventory of Existing Chemical Substances Number

(EINECS) or Colour Index Number given in the tables are provided for information purposes only.

This European Standard is intended to complete the general valid safety requirements of Directive 88/378/EEC by

special requirements for finger paints, to facilitate the proof of compliance with these general specifications.

1 Scope

This part of EN 71 specifies requirements for the substances and materials used in finger paints and applies to

finger paints only.
Additional requirements are specified for markings, labelling and containers.
2 Normative references
