198
199 6 Modifications to clause 5, General conditions for tests
200 6.2 Preconditioning
201 Replace clause by the following:

202 Prior to preconditioning, electric toys that require assembly are assembled in accordance with the

203 manufacturer’s instructions.

204 Each test or assessment is carried out using either a preconditioned sample or non-preconditioned sample,

205 depending on which ever sample gives the most unfavourable result. For example, it is more unfavourable not

206 to use the preconditioned sample when preconditioning has damaged the enclosure of the electric toy

207 creating better air cooled conditions.

208 If parts detach from the electric toy, they may be reattached if this creates a more unfavourable condition.

209 If the electric toy stops functioning such that the tests cannot be conducted then the preconditions may be

210 repeated up to two additional times on fresh samples. Should all three electric toys stop functioning in the

211 same way, then the tests of this standard are conducted on a non-preconditioned sample.

212 The preconditioned sample is prepared by subjecting it to the following test methods in the order specified

213 below, with batteries in position:

214 — Tension test – for all electric toys; Test method of EN71-1: 2014+A1:2018 clause 8.4 however, with a

215 force of 70 N ± 2 N independently of the dimensions and applicable independently of age group. The force

216 shall be applied subsequently parallelly and perpendicularly to the major axis of the test component;

217 — Drop test – The drop test is not carried out on large and bulky electric toys;

218 Electric toys falling below the mass limits indicated in Table 5 shall be dropped onto a specified impact

219 surface. The number of times the electric toy shall be dropped and the height from which it is dropped

220 shall also be determined from Table X. The electric toy shall be dropped from 93 cm ± 5 cm, irrespective

221 of the age group. The electric toy shall be dropped in random orientation. The impact surface shall

222 consist of vinyl composition tile of approximately 3 mm nominal thickness laid over concrete of at least

223 64 mm thickness. The tile shall have a hardness of (80 ± 10) Shore A and the impact surface shall be at

224 least 0,3 m2.
225

226 After each drop, the electric toy shall be allowed to come to rest and shall be examined and evaluated

227 before continuing.

228 — Tip over test – for large and bulky electric toys; test method of EN71: 2014+A1:2018 clause 8.6.

---------------------- Page: 10 ----------------------
SIST EN IEC 62115:2020/A11:2020
EN IEC 62115:2020/A11:2020 (E)

229 — Static strength test – for electric toys designed to bear the mass of a child; Test method of EN71:

230 2014+A1:2018 clause 8.21
231 — Dynamic strength test – for wheeled ride-on electric toys;

232 Load the electric toy for 5 min in the most onerous position with a mass on its standing or sitting surface.

233 The mass shall be (25 ±0,2) kg for electric toys intended for children under 36 months and (50 ±0,5) kg

234 for electric toys intended to children of 36 months and over. Secure the load to the electric toy in a

235 position corresponding to the normal use of the electric toy. Drive the electric toy three times at a speed

236 of (2 ± 0,2) m/s into a non-resilient step with a height of 50 mm. If the electric toy is intended to bear the

237 mass of more than one child at a time, test each sitting or standing area simultaneously

238 — Tension test for seams and materials – test method of EN71: 2014+A1:2018 clause 8.4.2.2 for electric

239 toys having textile or other flexible materials covering batteries or other electrical parts.

240 NOTE Compliance with EN71: 2014+A1:2018 is not checked after the preconditioning. The pre-conditions are

241 conducted in order to determine the influence on the requirements and tests of this standard.

242 7 Modifications to clause 7, Marking and Instructions
243 7.1 General
244 Add the following paragraph at the end of 7.1:

245 The warnings shall be preceded by the words “Warning” or “Warnings”, as appropriate (i.e. instead of repeating the word

246 “Warning” before each warning when several of the warnings in this standard are present, the word “Warnings” may be

247 used once). The word “Warning” or “Warnings” may be capitalized or followed by punctuation, e.g. an exclamation mark.

248 7.2 Markings on electric toys
249 7.2.1 Identification
250 Delete sub-clause 7.2.1 and replace with the following informative notes:

251 NOTE The following bullet points include information about requirements in Directive 2009/48/EC, relating to marking

252 of toys and do not constitute requirements of this European Standard. The information is not exhaustive and it is advised

253 to consult Directive 2009/48/EC and the associated guidance documents for further details.

254 — The manufacturer’s name, registered trade name or registered trade mark and the address at which the manufacturer

255 can be contacted shall be indicated on the toy or, where that is not possible, on its packaging or in a document

256 accompanying the toy. This requirement applies also to the name and address etc. of any importer .

257 — Manufacturers shall ensure that their toys bear a type, batch, serial or model number or other element allowing their

258 identification, or where the size or nature of the toy does not allow it, that the required information is provided on the

259 packaging or in a document accompanying the toy.

260 — Manufacturers and importers shall ensure that the toy is accompanied by instructions and safety information in a

261 language or languages easily understood by consumers, as determined by the Member State concerned.

262 — A Member State may, within its territory, stipulate that warnings and safety instructions shall be written in a language or

263 languages easily understood by consumers, as determined by that Member State.

A manufacturer is any natural or legal person who manufactures a toy or has a toy designed or manufactured, and markets that toy

under his name or trademark.

110 Introduction

111 If the IEC Foreword or parts of it is used in the EN Foreword, the following applies: Replace the 8th

112 paragraph by the following:

113 Other safety aspects of electric toys are described in the EN 71 series of standards.

114 Delete the 10 paragraph.
115 Delete “IEC” or replace it where appropriate by “CLC”.
116 1 Scope
117 Replace the scope by the following:

118 This European Standard specifies safety requirements for toys that have at least one function

119 dependant on electricity, electric toys being any product designed or clearly intended, whether or

120 not exclusively, for use in play by children of less than 14 years of age.
121 NOTE 1 Examples of electric toys also within the scope of this standard are
122 - constructional sets;
123 - experimental sets;

124 - functional electric toys (an electric toy which performs and is used in the same way as a product, appliance or

125 installation intended for use by adults, and which may be a scale model of such product, appliance or

126 installation);
127 - electric toy computers;
128 - A doll's house having an interior lamp
129 Additional requirements for experimental sets are given in Annex A.

130 Additional requirements for electric toys incorporating optical radiation sources are given in Annex

131 E.

132 Measurement methods for electric toys generating Electromagnetic fields (EMF) are given in

133 Annex F.

134 Additional requirements for the safety of remote-controls for electric ride-on toys are given in

135 Annex J.

136 If the packaging is intended to have play value, then it is considered to be part of the electric toy.

137 This European Standard only covers the safety aspects of electric toys that relate to an electrical

138 function.

139 NOTE 2 The EN 71 series of standards address other aspects of the safety of toys. Other horizontal product standards

140 may also apply to toys.

141 This standard covers the safety of electric toys taking power from any source, such as batteries,

142 transformers, solar cells and inductive connections.

143 NOTE 3 Transformers for toys (EN 61558-2-7:2007 for linear types or EN 61558-2-7:2007 and EN 61558-2-16:2013 for

144 switch mode types), battery chargers (EN 60335-2-29:2010) and battery chargers for use by children (EN 60335-2-

145 29:2010,Annex AA) are not considered to be part of an electric toy even if supplied with an electric toy.

146 NOTE 4 This standard is not intended to assess the safety of batteries however it does address the safety of the toy with

147 the batteries inserted.
148 This European Standard does not apply to the following toys:
