MTS offers free toy safety webinar – Compliance after Brexit

Published on: 22nd February 2021

The Compliance after Brexit webinar will cover changes since the UK left the EU and ensure toy companies are up to date with the latest regulations.

On 2nd March, MTS will be running a toy safety seminar with a focus on the new regulatory landscape after Brexit. The new UK/EU relationship has been in effect for two months now, so it is a good time to review what this now means for compliance when placing toys onto either market – what has and has not changed, as well as looking at the legislation and labelling.

Since the UK has left the EU there have been implications for moving goods across Europe and former classifications as manufacturers, importers or distributors may have changed depending on what, where and how you fit into the supply chain. The webinar will cover these changes and what that means under the new trading relationship as well as covering the new UKCA mark and the timelines for applying this to toys in Great Britain.

The webinar is free and begins at 9.00AM on Tuesday 2nd March. The topics covered will be:

  • Toy compliance after Brexit
  • The UKCA mark and when to use it
  • Key implications for selling goods across Europe
  • Compliance documentation
  • Q&A

The webinar is free of charge to attend and is expected to last 45 – 60 minutes.

Interested parties can find out more at the Modern Testing Services website. To register, simply provide your name, company name, and email address to and you will receive a Zoom link to the webinar to your registered email address within 48 hours.
