European foreword

This document (FprCEN/TR 15371-2:2021) has been prepared by Technical Committee CEN/TC 52

“Safety of toys”, the secretariat of which is held by DS.
This document is currently submitted to the Vote on TR.
This document will supersede CEN/TR 15371-2:2019.

In comparison with CEN/TR 15371-2:2019, one interpretation sheet has been added. Some of the

previous interpretations have been modified, due to amendments to the corresponding EN 71 standards.

CEN/TR 15371 series, Safety of toys — Interpretations, is currently composed of the following parts:

— Part 1: Replies to requests for interpretation of EN 71-1, EN 71-2, EN 71-8 and EN 71-14;

— Part 2: Replies to requests for interpretation of the chemical standards in the EN 71-series.

0 Introduction
0.1 Interpretations and no-action decisions

This document contains replies to requests for interpretations concerning the understanding of clauses

in the chemical standards in the EN 71-series:
— EN 71-3: Migration of certain elements;
— EN 71-4: Experimental sets for chemistry and related activities;
— EN 71-5: Chemical toys (sets) other than experimental sets;
— EN 71-7: Finger paints — Requirements and test methods;
— EN 71-9: Organic chemical compounds — Requirements;
— EN 71-10: Organic chemical compounds — Sample preparation and extraction;
— EN 71-11: Organic chemical compounds — Methods of analysis;
— EN 71-12: N-Nitrosamines and N-Nitrosatable substances;
— EN 71-13: Olfactory board games, cosmetic kits and gustative games.

The replies concern those requests that have resulted in an interpretation or a decision that no action is

required as the standard is sufficiently clear.

An interpretation does not have the same status as the text of the standard, nor can it overrule the text of

the standard. However, following an interpretation should give assurance that the relevant clause of the

standard has been correctly applied. An interpretation should only be regarded as a clarification of the

meaning of the standard such that stakeholders can apply it correctly in a conformity assessment. An

interpretation is not an assessment of the requirement in the standard - it is only a strict interpretation

of the meaning of the text.
Disclaimer:

The interpretations have been derived by expert groups of CEN/TC 52. The information contained herein

is for guidance only and does not reflect the formal approval by CEN or CEN member bodies. It should be

noted that the interpretations are neither part of any standard nor have been referenced in the Official

Journal of the European Union.
0.2 Requests for interpretation

Requests for interpretations may be submitted by a CEN member body through its national committee

or by a CEN/TC 52 liaison (but not directly by an individual or a company) - in accordance with the

interpretation protocols agreed by CEN/TC 52. The requests are then channelled to the relevant

CEN/TC 52 working party, which will then deal with the request.
A request for an interpretation may lead to:
a) An interpretation of the standard:

This should reflect a reasonable interpretation of how the standard should be used, taking into

account:
1. the wording of the standard;
---------------------- Page: 6 ----------------------
kSIST-TP FprCEN/TR 15371-2:2021
FprCEN/TR 15371-2:2021 (E)
2. the rationale of the standard;
3. the history of the standard.
b) A no-action decision:

This is applicable when it is agreed that the standard appropriately specifies how a toy shall be

assessed.
c) A proposal for an amendment of the standard:
This is applicable when it is agreed that the standard is deficient in some way.

NOTE Interpretation and no-action decisions are published in CEN/TR 15371-2, which will be updated on a

regular basis.

Proposals for amendments will be progressed as new work item proposals in accordance with CEN rules.

0.3 Answers to requests for interpretations

Since requests for interpretations are submitted through a CEN member body or a CEN/TC 52 liaison, it

is assumed that they will keep themselves informed about decisions concerning the request and its

progress and will themselves inform the originator of the request as appropriate.
